Danny is in the doghouse again! To gain publicity for the family act, he has written a piece about Keith for the local paper and his imagination has gone wild. Needless to say, when Keith finds out he is furious and with good cause -- everyone at school is needling him about the article, which claims he has a rose tattoo on his behind and a crush on his English teacher! But Danny apologizes and all is well -- until the second installment of the article appears. This time it is Shirley who must suffer the embarrassment of Danny's publicity campaign. This time, Danny claims that Shirley once ran a school for exotic dancers and is hopelessly attracted to men in trench coats and beards! The worst part of it is that Shirley, who doesn't want to leave the house, has to appear in public at a fashion show and family concert. However, the performance turns out to be successful and Shirley is relieved.

Danny's punishment is not forgotten, however, as the family takes revenge in a Sunday supplement article. There are many juicy parts, including a bit about Danny's ballet lessons, and his love of giving his money to charity!
