Happy April Fools day, everyone! ūüėÄ

This year we decided not to give the entire fandom a heart attack¬†and rather stay on the funny side of the holiday (if you haven’t read the¬†latest¬†Cressida and Gale news stories, be sure to check them out!). Because The Hunger Games may be a very dramatic story dealing with some very serious themes, but the fandom is a whole different thing–¬†and the Hunger Games fandom is populated with some incredibly clever and funny people!

To close out this day and celebrate the ingenuity of our beloved fandom, we’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite Hunger Games jokes and memes. And we’ll start with the ever-popular…


Bread Jokes

Because Peeta is the best thing since sliced bread. (I’m sorry. I’m so sorry).

  • I don’t love bread, I loaf it.
  • If Peeta were a ginger, would he be called the gingerbread man?
  • I bread your pardon?!
  • I want you to want me, I need you to knead me.
  • “We found bread in a toastless place.”
  • May the loaves be ever in your favor!
