Funniest Moments in Mockingjay (Book 3 of The Hunger Games Trilogy)

Mockingjay is a more serious book compared to the first two in the trilogy (The Hunger Games and Catching Fire), so it’s understandable that there are very few funny moments. Here are my three favorites.

# 3 – Hungry Haymitch 

Haymitch in my head full-time. Horrifying. “I’ll keep the earpiece in,” I mutter.

“Excuse me?” he says.

“You sure? Because I’m equally happy with any of the three options,” he tells me.

“I’m sure,” I say. I scrunch up the earpiece wire protectively in my fist and fling the head shackle back in his face with my free hand, but he catches it easily. Probably was expecting me to throw it. “Anything else?”

Haymitch rises to go. “While I was waiting… I ate your lunch.”

# 2 – Half-Naked Finnick

She snags Gale, who’s in conversation with Plutarch, and spins him towards us. “Isn’t he handsome?”

Gale does look striking in the uniform, I guess. But the question just embarrasses us both, given our history. I’m trying to think of a witty comeback, when Boggs says brusquely, “Well, don’t expect us to be too impressed. We just saw Finnick Odair in his underwear.”

# 1 – Katniss Is Not a Mutt

Back in 13, Peeta’s rehabilitation continues. Even though I don’t ask, Plutarch gives me cheerful updates on the phone like, “Good news, Katniss! I think we’ve almost got him convinced you’re not a mutt!”

    Lol Haymitch is like, “C’mon now sweetheart, I’m just giving you another reason to hate me.” XD XD XD

  5. Wolfy_4281 says:

    Lol Haymitch cracks me up. Its like she already hates him so he gives her another reason to hate him. I love the way these two are with eachother. XD But if I had to pick between Gale and Peeta I’d pick…. BOTH!! XD
