To celebrate the re-release of Disney.Pixar’s “Monster,Inc.” in 3D, we recently held a competition giving away 50 family passes to see this movie return on the big screen. Entrants were asked this:
“What is the most embarrassing thing your “little monster” has done whilst on holidays or out in public?”
The competition has now closed, and needless to say; we have received some cracker entries. Thank you to everyone who submitted an entry. The 50 winners have now been chosen and your family pass is on its way.
In the meantime, we would like to share just a few of our personal favourites. We hope they bring a smile to your face:
- Claire from WA: “My then 3 year old daughter had an accident in Myer Perth overflowing her gumboots with wee. I was mortified while trying to console her.”
- Lisa from VIC: “In our house we call footstools ‘poofs’. Getting off the x-ray table after kicking one, my little monster shouts ‘bloody poofs!’”
- Lee from QLD: “Master 5 proudly held up a pair of girls swimming bottoms he found by a busy pool, and yelled “everybody, these are my daddy’s pink, frilly jocks”.
- Nicole from NSW: “Told the receptionist at BIG4 Umina that his bed was so much more comfy than the cupboard he sleeps in at home. She was horrified! (He meant ‘car bed’ not cupboard.)”
- Lesley from VIC: “Asked a man in a lift who was wearing an eyepatch where his Parrot was.”
- Bobby from NSW: “My little daughter ran towards her father in the airport, hugged him and started kissing him and then realised it was a total stranger.”
- Gail from QLD: “At Sydney Airport with crowds nearby, my “little monster” started to cry. Bending over to find out what’s wrong, she pulled down my skirt, exposing my thong.”
- Nicole from VIC: “My son found money under the butchers cabinet. While reaching under to get it, his head got stuck and they had to lift it off him.”
- Kelly from VIC: “Our 4 year old daughter flashed the crosswalk lady at primary school. What I didn’t realise until then was that she had taken her underpants off and had nothing under her dress.”
- Lara from WA: “Having lunch in a pub recently, Miss Four pointed to a heavily tattooed biker and loudly commented on how naughty he was for drawing on himself.”
- Belinda from NSW: “With a hand down the front of his pants, my son yelled out “I think I have worms”.
Kids! Gotta love them.
We hope you enjoyed reading them as much as we loved reading all the wonderfully embarrassing stories you all had to share.

“Monsters, Inc.,” one of Disney.Pixar’s most beloved and visually imaginative feature films ever, returns to the big screen to delight a whole new generation of audiences and fans alike, this time in stunning 3D on January 17.
The now-classic Academy Award®-winning animated comedy adventure “Monsters, Inc.” is set in Monstropolis, a thriving company town where monsters of all shapes and sizes reside. Lovable Sulley (voiced by John Goodman) and his wisecracking best friend Mike Wazowski (voiced by Billy Crystal) are the top scare team at Monsters, Inc., the largest scream-processing factory. The main power source in the monster world is the collected screams of human children—and at Monsters, Inc., an elite team of scarers is responsible for gathering those precious natural resources. Believed by monsters to be toxic, children are strictly forbidden from entering Monstropolis. But when a little girl named Boo (voiced by Mary Gibbs) accidentally follows Sulley back into his world, he finds his career in jeopardy and his life in utter chaos. So pals Mike and Sulley plot to rectify the mistake and return Boo to her home. But when the trio encounters an unexpected series of complications, they become embroiled in a cover-up catapulting them into a mystery beyond their wildest dreams.
