Warning: Graphic turkey violence.

Did you ever wonder how they choose which turkey gets pardoned by the president?

A bloody farm fight to death obviously.

"Gobble Games" - featuring a "cameo' by Obama - imagines a world where tribute turkeys need to tear each other apart for their freedom.

Remember their sacrifice as you're stuffing yourself with them this week.

Protest of the Day: Thailand is Experiencing Hunger Games IRL

Students protesting the military coup in Thailand have adopted Katniss' 3-fingered salute from Hunger Games, and "The Capitol" is not happy.

The military-controlled government has banned the gesture, and a movie chain has cancelled all screenings of the latest film "Mockingjay" as a result of the protests and, reportedly, pressure from the police.

Five students were arrested at a speech this week by Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-O-Cha (Thailand's President Snow), wearing shirts that read "Don't Want a Coup."

Chan-O-Cha is denying any involvement in the screening cancellations. He also says he isn't phased by the salute, but warns them all - in a very creepy Snow-like fashion - that this might "jeopardize their futures."

Maybe the government should spend more time watching the movies themselves to learn that trying to silence the people is probably not going to end very well for them.

Hunger Games actor and professional teenager, Josh Hutcherson, had to learn the hard way that when you're famous, you can't waltz into a grocery store to buy booze, despite being a minor, and think that the world will not know -- but he did it anyway. Not to say that minors don't drink alcohol (probably shouldn't), but since Peeta didn't get hit with a "Minor in Possession" charge, he just proved that celebrities can pretty much get away with most petty crimes.
