Millions of young women across the country have grown extremely concerned and anxious after “Girls” creator and star Lena Dunham came down with laryngitis, temporarily silencing the new “voice of their generation.” According to Dunham’s mentor, Judd Apatow, the 26-year-old’s laryngitis was caused by Dunham talking non-stop for twenty hours about herself and how great she is, following her winning two Golden Globes Sunday night.
“On a happier note, it’s finally nice to find something in life that I’m not able to do, which is speak,” Dunham wrote on a dry erase board. “I’m almost as jealous of anyone who can talk, as people are as jealous of how incredibly talented and successful I am.”
Dunham also wrote on the dry erase board that her laryngitis is a blessing in disguise because the much-needed break not talking about herself will allow her to finally get to work on her highly-anticipated book, “Not That Type of Girl,” for which she received a $3.7 million advance.
Meanwhile, the millions of self-absorbed, twenty-something females currently having to cope without the “voice of their generation,” have become even whinier and more self-indulgent since Dunham’s illness. Fortunately, many of the parents of this voiceless generation have agreed to up their adult daughters’ monthly allowance to help them cope until Dunham is healthy enough to speak for them again.
A spokesperson for HBO has assured “Girls” fans that production on the hit series will continue despite Denham’s laryngitis.
“The other female cast members are extremely excited to finally get some dialogue now that Lena is unable to give herself all the lines,” the HBO spokesperson told Hollywood & Swine. “Unfortunately, for television viewers, Lena plans to make up for her lack of dialogue in upcoming episodes by getting naked even more.”
