Lena Dunham threw the Today show into disarray this morning when she said the word, "penis" on-air during an interview with Maria Shriver.

The madness began when Shriver told Dunham that she'd seen three episodes of the new season of Girls.

"You saw a penis, right?" Dunham responded.

And that's when everything went bananas. (No pun intended.)

Granted, Lena Dunham asking if Maria Shriver saw a penis while watching her show was extremely weird, but what really fascinates me is that morning talk show anchors apparently have no idea how to handle the word "penis." She completely shut down! The show was thrown into chaos! Time stood still! Even Matt Lauer didn't know what to do!


Someone send the Today show puppy out here to break the awkward tension, please!
