Yes, we’re that easily amused. No, we’re not even a little bit sorry.

For all the marketing campaigns and contests and fancy schmancy apps created to promote the film, we’ve had about ten thousand times more fun sneak attacking everyone we know with these silly little stickers on messages and comments. Because as much as fans want to analyze the series and its deep meaning, sometimes you just gotta have fun with it!

The sticker artist was clearly taking the caricature approach, but we totally dig it. From ridiculous faces and giant jaws, it isn’t actually about actor worship. Instead it’s about the characters. Who woulda thunk it?!

And there’s a Mockingjay based emoticon for everything, people!
Too much spiked eggnog? Boozy Haymitch!
Can’t answer a simple question due to too much spiked eggnog? Cross-eyed, shrugging Peeta!
Getting overconfident with someone attractive? Lovestruck Finnick!
Pissed about their rejection of your overconfident flirtations? Katniss about to shoot someone with an arrow!
And for just about anything else? Caesar throwing his head back and basking in glory!

BOOM! THAT JUST HAPPENED!

So let’s take a moment to celebrate the little moments in fandom that make us happy… then let’s harass our Facebook friends with them!

Just Call It Sticker Shock! GET IT?!
