Lena Dunham: Target of Bizarre Craigslist Missed Connection
Her hit HBO series has fans everywhere, but one particular admirer chose to express his adoration in a bizarre way, with an explicit Craigslist Missed Connections post.
Entitled Lena Dunham'si D**k," the long post explores the writer's alleged personal history with the 27-year-old star and his growing obsession with her.
Though some speculate that the author was the "Girls" creator's ex-boyfriend from Oberlin, it's creative enough and written in such a way as to likely just be fan fiction.
In the post, the author writes about going on a date which he describes as follows: "Do you watch 'Girls?" "'I haven't seen it,' I said taking a sip of melted ice, although most people seem to love it.'" "Then I'm not most people 'cause I don't get it. I mean, the show's okay. I still watch it. But the way people go on and on about it. . . It's like Lena Dunham grew a d**k and the whole world lined up to suck it, you know?" Eventually, that is the image which gives the anonymous author his catharsis.
Later, the author added a prologue to the post, writing, "I'm a huge fan of Lena Dunham and GIRLS. The story was written from the perspective of a pathetic jerk (who gets his comeuppance in the end) and was meant to convey the perils of jealousy and resentment--while having the same frankness and candor as her show. I did not anticipate this level of exposure. I did hope, however, that people would understand what the story was intended to be about rather than make snap judgments based on the title and excerpts. I think the world of Lena and wish there were more writers like her."
