The Word: Lena Dunham and Mindy Kaling watched SNL 'Girls' parody together

Lena Dunham and Mindy Kaling came together in LA to watch the "Saturday Night Live" premiere, and Tina Fey came together with herself to make fun of Lena.

If I were a religious person, this might be my holy trinity of lady comedy: Lena Dunham, indie darling; Mindy Kaling, taking the broadcast mainstream by storm; and Tina Fey, overlord comedy queen supreme. On Saturday night, all three of them came together.

Well, sort of. Lena and Mindy came together in LA to watch the "Saturday Night Live" premiere, and Tina Fey came together with herself to make fun of Lena.

The "30 Rock" star appeared in a spoof of Dunham's HBO show "Girls," playing Blerta, a new Albanian roommate horrified by how spoiled these rich American girls are. It's pretty funny (and possibly also a nod to former SNL writer Simon Rich, whose novella in the New Yorker had a similar premise). Luckily, Dunham wasn't offended: "Mindy Project" star Kaling posted a pic on Instagram of her enjoying the sketch. "Original Girl enjoying Blerta on#snl's Girls at my house," she wrote.

"The SNL parody of Girls was a true honor," Lena later tweeted. "Very excited about the current lineup of SNL ladies. They are funny like whoa." Agreed. Especially new girl Noel Wells, who does a spot-on Lena impression.
