Dear GYA, In a bold new world, where bros in sweatpants stuff their faces for sandwich supremacy, a valiant franchise called Subway has somehow managed to tie-in its foot-long sandwiches with the Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Yes, the same sandwich shop, where the artist behind the counter quietly murmurs to himself, "May the odds be ever in your favor that you don't crap your pants an hour from now." ---Please tell me there's something happening this weekend better than Subway's new Hunger Games sandwiches? - Daryl Washurp, Park City
