Lena Dunham Will Help You Sell Your Couch on Craigslist

by Sara Bellman and Abby Schreiber

A Broooklyn man named Mickey Dwyer was trying to sell his couch on Craigslist. A "beautiful, sexy, REAL and relatable couch.....Basically the Lena Dunham of couches." He took to twitter to ask Lena for help about getting the word out and, like the good used furniture-pushing samaritan she apparently is, she re-tweeted it. We hope that couch finds itself a good home and that it will one day be the voice, nay -- a voice -- of the $800 Macy's couch generation. [Defamer]
