THE HUNGER GAMES - Aka...Obama's America

By King Hippo - Posted on 20 May 2012

I had my doubts after the first 15 minutes of this flick...I let out a mental groan as I girded myself for another Running Man or Death Race 2000...or Death Race...or Death Race 2. Whatever the sequel may be, I was ready to let out a King Hippo roar if Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Arnold Schwarzenegger, or David Carradine entered stage right. Thankfully, the theater crowd got a reprieve and was deprived of a pissed off King Hippo grunt and subsequent grass brick turd launch. On the minus side, I still had to put up with uber-lib Donald Sutherland as the president of Panem, the post-apocalyptic world that used to be the United States.

It seems that the surrounding 12 'districts' must pay the capitol penance each year by selecting two contestants between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in a free-for-all to the death where only one man is left standing. Of course, the carnage is televised throughout the city and surrounding districts ala Who Wants To Be A Millionaire style.

I must admit, Stanley Tucci and Toby Jones shine as Caesar Flickerman and Claudius Templesmith - our John Madden and Pat Summerall blow by blow analysts. Note to readers: If you've ever wondered what Dan Cedar looks and acts like - pay close attention to Claudius Templesmith.

The rest of the movie revolves around our erstwhile Tori Amos look alike heroine Katniss Everdeen negotiating the formidable pitfalls of the battlefield and the other combatants. Jennifer Lawrence's performance is sublime. I have to remind myself that there are actually ACTORS out there in filmland, despite the usual gang of no talent faggots like Nicolas Cage and Samuel L. Jackson who seem to pop up in every other movie made. And by ‘faggots’…I am using it in the same way that Mark Knopfler used the phrase in the god awful song, ‘I Want My MTV’, back in the 1980s (the worst decade of music since Scott Joplin plied that Ragtime shit on this once, great nation).

But, I digress…I just have one gripe with this story: the age range of the contestants is 12 to 18.


How about a fucking contest between 18 and 80 year olds? How about a dancing contest between the deaf and the blind? How about a tanning contest between Nigerians and Gingers? How about a foot race between Stephen Hawking and Usain Bolt? How about a cocksucking contest between Linda Lovelace and Dan Cedar? Ok, that last one may be a toss-up.

So, to highlight Obama's America: 1) have a permanent uneducated working class to do your menial labor and to vote for you at every election because they're such ignorant dumbfucks. 2) have most of the people who work in your society - work only for the government so therefore, they will vote for you to keep their jobs. 3) have a bourgeoisie class of mindless, self-absorbed do-nothings living off the government teat so they will vote for you. 4) have the liberal cocksucking elites run everything, because, of course, libs are the smartest people on the face of the earth. Especially that Kenyan/Marxist that currently inhabits the White House.

Lastly, to paraphrase President Sutherland, "Do you know what keeps the masses in line?" "Hope." How's all that 'hope and change' working out for you fuckhead lemmings? Just as I thought.

Yeah, I know…I digressed again!!

Wasilla, AK - Today, soon to be ex-Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin, announced more specifics on her puzzling decision to step down from her role as governor of Alaska.

Appearing at a press conference, that was ripe with double entendre, and fully heightened in four inch red, high heels, a black pleather mini-skirt and a white, ruffled, half-unbuttoned blouse – “Caribou Barbie” as some have dubbed her, came out with ordnance ablaze.
