Through three books and four movies, Hunger Games fans have witnessed Katniss Everdeen reject the advances of her hunky best friend, Gale Hawthorne, for the company of the kind, soft-spoken Peeta Mellark, her one true love.

Or so we thought. Katniss and Peeta always seemed a bit off as a couple, and the latest video from YouTube parody channel PistolShrimps shows why: It’s pita, not Peeta, that Katniss desires. Turns out all the Mockingjay wanted was some soft, gently leavened flatbread.
