For Some Reason Maria Shriver Was Shook To Her Core By Lena Dunham Saying "Penis" On Live Television

No one knows what just happened.

Posted on

This morning on The Today Show, Lena Dunham joined Maria Shriver on air to talk about Lena's show Girls.

NBC

However we might not know what they were ever going to actually discuss because the interview was thrown off course when Lena Dunham surprised Maria by dropping the P-word.

I'M TALKING THE WORD "PENIS." You know, this thing. It's science.

Apparently it is a word that Maria has never heard or said in her life, judging by the reaction she had upon hearing it come out of Lena's mouth.

NBC

BECAUSE IT SHOOK HER TO HER CORE.

NBC

Literally it threw the entire interview. It was as if Lena had just removed that choker from her neck and her head had fallen off. Maria begged Matt Lauer for help.

NBC

Who just stood there and was like, "Hhuuhhhhhhhh???"

NBC

And Lena was like "PEACE BITCHES!"

NBC

And Maria was still reeling.

NBC

And then after Lena apologized for saying that word, Maria continued to say that her reaction is due to a generational divide.

NBC

I guess the divide is that pre-millennials, the word "penis" did not exist?????

Lena responded that Maria has definitely said the word "penis" before.

NBC

And upon hearing that word for her second time, Maria was shaken again.

NBC

Matt ended up having to come close the interview and literally hold Maria's hand through this trauma.

NBC

Anyway, happy peni— I MEAN Friday!
