Stephanie Ai Foamwire-Putty (born April 29, 1978) is the heavily-pierced punk proprietor of Moralton's lone sex and piercings shop called Buried Pleasures.


Stephanie Ai Foamwire (later -Putty) was born on April 29, 1978 to a 41-year-old spinster named Gladys Foamwire. Growing up, Stephanie considered her childhood as "uninteresting". She became an atheist because she didn't want to go through what her mother went through (her mother was obsessed with god, and became very religious). In high school, Stephanie and Kim Latchkey were friends and Kim planned with Stephanie that they should kiss each other passionately in front of Reverend Putty at the Arms Length Dance to make him angry. Stephanie agrees to do this, not realizing until later that it was merely a ploy by Kim in order to get Karl Latchkey to notice her, even though Stephanie herself had actual feelings for Kim. Every time she and Kim tried to kiss, she would see Kim as a one-eyed "angel" in "Closeface", which annoyed Kim, who thought that Stephanie was joking. After humiliating Stephanie in front of Karl, Kim went away with him (and eventually marries him at age 15, which results in the birth and neglection of their son Doughy Latchkey in the future). Whatever happened in Stephanie's life before and after these events are unknown, although in "Be Fruitful and Multiply", Stephanie describes her childhood as "uninteresting". 13 years later, Putty tells her why Kim never accepted Stephanie's feelings: Kim simply didn't care about her.

She currently owns the only sex shop in Moralton, Buried Pleasures. Orel Puppington, meeting her for the first time, wants a piercing that will "increase the pleasure of intercourse", thinking that it is what he needs to make his wife happy. She decides to give him a Prince Albert piercing and the two become friends. In fact, Orel finds her so "warm" and caring that he tells her she would make a good mother. Stephanie tells him that he should stick to being a good kid and that's what'll make his eventual wife happy.

It is revealed in "Be Fruitful and Multiply" that her mother stole Reverend Putty's bedside garbage can and used his sperm to impregnate herself. After a failed date with Stephanie, and after hearing an inspirational sermon from Orel, Putty decides to stop actually making his life miserable and have a father-daughter relationship with Stephanie. They form a relationship that seems to be the only successful and happy relationship in the whole town of Moralton.

In "Praying" when Orel has trouble relaxing, she gives him some incense and a record of Buddhist chants so that he can meditate, which succeeds in helping him (and almost gets him in trouble), but ultimately helps him win the Praying Bee in the end.


As described by Orel Puppington, Stephanie is a warm, compassionate and caring person who helps other people that show friendliness towards her, especially Orel. Her decisions when it comes to her love-life are usually very bad ones (e.g. her failed attempt at a relationship with Kim Latchkey). In "Closeface" She is also very skilled at singing and playing the guitar.

Family and Relationships Edit

  • Reverend Putty: Putty is her biological father. The two met and eventually formed a successful relationship.
  • Orel Puppington: She and Orel are good friends and she is like a motherly figure to him. She is one of the only adults who treats Orel decently and who wants him to be happy. She even helped him get Christina Posabule out of her home so the pair could dance at the Arms Length Dance together.
  • Kim Latchkey: The two were best friends in high school, but the friendship ended when Stephanie confessed to Kim that she liked her. Kim was oblivious to it and thought that Stephanie simply had a "weird sense of humor." Reverend Putty finally explained to Stephanie that Kim didn't care about her feelings.
  • Karl Latchkey: The two are not very fond of each other. It is clear Stephanie had a clear dislike of Karl for several reasons, mostly because of his immaturity and how he and Kim teased her. In some ways, Stephanie may have disliked him because he was competition for Kim's attention and also because she was somewhat jealous of his relationship with her.
  • Gladys Foamwire: Gladys was Stephanie's mother. Gladys conceived Stephanie by using Reverend Putty's sperm that she stole from his wastebasket. When she was dying, she told Stephanie about him, and when they'd met, they formed a good relationship.

Appearances Edit

  • Praying: Stephanie gives Orel incense and LP record of Buddhist monk chants, teaching him meditation.
  • School Pageant: She is seen in the audience watching the school play.
  • Honor: She and Putty listen to Orel and Coach Stopframe caroling (albeit very badly) outside their house, only out of kindness.

Trivia Edit
