Forget all those exciting Hunger Games casting tidbits for a moment (Natalie Dormer as Cressida! Julianne Moore as Alma Snow!) and take a look at one of the funniest parodies we've seen in awhile.

Yes, it's time to watch a trailer for The Jewish Hunger Games: Kvetching Fire.

Posted over the weekend in honor of Yom Kippur, the hilariously detailed video should make Jews forget about the stomach-rumbling they experienced Saturday when fasting for 24 hours in honor of this atonement-based holiday.

Watch now and, don't worry Jewish readers, the video is rated Kosher. It does not include pork, shellfish or Mel Gibson.
