The Weird Society began in
1995 when Renee Perry took an acting class with Maria Muniz and Courtney
Russell. During one class, when they were bored and waiting for their cues,
Courtney began to tell her friends of her extra-terrestial origins, and

the appropriate title Evil Sister. A friend at school became The Blonde
Avenger and her sidekick Politically Correct Girl. Their archenemy was
another student at the school, one Sexist Man. Fellow students in the influential

sister won her way into the comic -- with the appropriate pseudonym Annoying
Girl. Not even the school's substitute teachers could escape from Renee's
relentless search for villains when she created L.O.S.T. -- the Legion
Of Substitute Teachers.
Renee was sleeping over Maria's house one night
when she had a terrific idea. Whay not write a Constitution and make the
Weird Society a real club? So she and Maria went upstairs and did just

The online version, which is slightly less concerned with TV than the original, was drafted by Renee upon the founding of the Weird Society Online. Cool, huh?
