Lena Dunham Detained at Airport for Cat-Shaped Weapon

Lena Dunham was detained at the airport for carrying a cat-shaped self-defense keychain (a gift from a fellow Girls exec, intended for leaving the office late at night), as she revealed on Late Night With Seth Meyers last night. And you won’t believe what her mom had to say about it! This pitch-perfect talk-show anecdote becomes even more charming when you realize it could have been a New Yorker essay.
