That Really Stinks! Complete story

Sam’s sister wasn’t going to believe that a huge toilet monster with three blood-sucking tentacles took her smartphone. So Sam bravely went under the house and into the stinky sewage pipe jungle.

Sam had borrowed his sister's smartphone because she had this amazing app that would let you make the best fart noises.

“Everyone in the house is gonna think I'm on the loo, but I'm not! I'm so hilarious.”

(fart noises and Sam's laughter)

Sam loved playing pranks on his family. Sam was so busy laughing he didn't hear or see the sewer monster creep up behind him. The noise of the fart app had made the creature curious.

As soon as the tentacle monster saw the phone in Sam's hand, he knew he wanted it.

“You can't have this! It's my sister's phone! She'll kill me!”

It hadn't yet crossed Sam's mind that the monster could kill him too.

(Sam laughs from being tickled)

“I'm gonna be in big trouble with my sister.”

There was only one thing for Sam to do: he flushed himself down the loo.

Alligators were like the taxi network of the sewers. (Sam whistles) Sam hailed another alligator and jumped on board.

“Follow that monster!”

It was a tense ride through the sewers, but Sam was determined to get the phone back.

Sam had entered the monster's lair where there were five more tentacle monsters gathered.


The tentacle monster holds up the smartphone and presses buttons on the fart app.

(fart noises and laughing)

All of the other monsters cracked up laughing. They'd never heard such a funny noise. The tentacle monster was very proud of himself. He'd made the whole gang laugh.

“You think that's funny? I can show you something even funnier!”

The tentacle monster wasn't happy about seeing Sam.

“But you have to give me the phone back – that's the deal. I show you something funnier, you give me the phone back.”


(Sam makes fart noises)

“Thank you. (still making fart noises) I told you I was hilarious.”
