Nuts and Volts as characters in 'Catching Fire'

Post by joepardue » Tue Sep 20, 2011 11:19 am

Suzanne Collins wrote the book Hunger Games which will be a movie in March 2012. In the sequel to that book: Catching Fire there are two techie type contestants in the game who are nicknamed Nuts and Volts. This really made me grin when I read about them. I wonder if the author was aware of the origins of her choice or if it was subliminal from her seeing the magazine somewhere? Who knows, maybe she is a subscriber!

I decided to do a 'Google is your friend' and found another use of our favorite magazines name:

1964 - Speedy Gonzales - Nuts and Volts
