Of course Ms. Dunham and her legal team had Gawker pull the book proposal off line... http://blog.zap2it.com/pop2it/2012/12/lena-dunham-forces-website-to-pull-published-book-proposal.html
So, just slightly related to all of this hubbub, I present a short sketch I wrote when Ms. Dunham first sold her lucrative book proposal. It would probably never see the light of day otherwise. Here ya go...
INT. JESTER PUBLISHING OFFICES – EVENING
OFFICE WORKERS mingle in a boardroom. Corks pop! Champagne pours! Celebration! MR. BACKIE stands on a chair.
Attention everyone! Attention! It’s a great day here at Jester
Publishing. We beat out the big six and nabbed our star for a
cool five million dollars! That's ninety percent of our budget, but,
as I’m sure you will agree, worth every penny. Now, without
further ado, please welcome Mr. Leonard Dunham!
We told you LENA Dunham… creator of “Girls”...
tattooed Brooklynite… FEMALE!
Mr. Backie screams in agony then jumps out a window to his death. Office Workers are stunned silent. They look to Leonard. He shifts, uncomfortable under their gaze.
Mr. Dunham. What is your book about?
Well… It’s actually a dream journal…
Office Workers scream in agony and begin to commit suicide in various ways: Seppuku, hanging by noose, cyanide capsules, etc.
After everyone is dead, Leonard wipes his brow with a handkerchief.
Good thing I already cashed that check.
