In a new skit, Tina Fey parodied HBO’s hit show Girls on Saturday Night Live . Lena Dunham, the mastermind behind Girls, got a kick out of it.
SNL made the skit into a fake promo for the new season. The show’s four main girls were represented; plus, a new girl was introduced into the picture – Fey’s character, Blerta, an woman from Albania.
In the spoof, Blerta says to Hannah, “I also have OCD. It’s when an old cow bites you and then the disease infects the skin,” according to Yahoo.
Blerta questions the girls of Girls, slapping Shoshanna for talking too much, assuming Hannah is 15 years old, and telling Jessa she’s a prostitute.
Dunham, the producer and main actress of Girls, got a good laugh out of the parody. Her friend, actress Mindy Kaling, tweeted a photo of her watching it from a couch:

Dunham also said herself on her own Twitter, “The SNL parody of Girls was a true honor.”
Season three of Girls will air in 2014 with 12 episodes, according to HBO Watch.
