Horace Henway was a regular kid but when he passed a little gas in class, the smell of it spread quickly. Horace turned redder than a beet as the sound was heard by every student in his class. His classmates held their noses as he sat in his seat and Billy said it was Horace who did it. There were reactions from Jimmy, Katie, and others, but it was only Mr. Loo who did not shame Horace. He decided to give a lesson in science about digestion. He explained to the class the entire process of digestion and why it is important what is put on the fork because unhealthy foods can clog the pipes like a cork. Horace decided to eat vegetables, fruits, nuts, and grains so that his pipes did not get clogged.
