Lena Dunham is a polarizing figure, though she never even intended to be controversial. Her show, HBO's hit series Girls, a comedy about a group of college-educated white chicks navigating the murky waters of New York City social life, has unintentionally angered all types of women for her failure to include ethnically diverse cast. Her tongue-in-cheek PSA for President Obama infuriated the right and mommy bloggers everywhere when she implicitly related voting for the first time to losing her virginity. And, last but not least, her $3.7 million book deal came under fire for no real reason except that people were jealous of her astonishing success at just 26 years old.

However, if there's one thing everyone can agree on about the producer/director/actor/author/all-around wunderkind, it's that she's hilarious. You'd have to be Scrooge McDuck not to at least smile at one of her many quips, most of which we get in the form of her priceless tweets. Whether you're celebrating the return of Girls or feeling salty about it, we dare you to try to maintain a stone face while reading Lena Dunham's 50 Funniest Tweets.
