Genre: Comedy
Written By Ben Alexander, Directed by Richard Kent Green

"WEIRD" follows the story of Doreen (Clare Patterson), a young, Catholic-college freshman who inadvertently discovers she has a powerful desire to spank her roommate Jill (Alexandra Devin). After searching for a way to get cured of this "WEIRD" problem, including a consultation with her psychology professor, Lawrence Havemayer (Fred Velde), Doreen reaches out to an online confidante, earthy novelist Vancouver Pengirl (Christine Verleny), who guides Doreen to the "Spanks-A-Lot Chat Forum." She gets advice and support from the chat room moderator, Le Chavalier, and more than one playful threat of a good spanking from web denizens Leatherman (Nelson Lugo) and Rosey-Bottom (Sauda Jackson). Life on campus turns scandalous when Doreen learns Le Chevalier's real identity and accidently spills the beans to her roommate, Jill (Alexandra Devin), who just happens to be dating the sensationalistic editor of the student paper.
