    Smile thunderpants face

    Hello. I'm not sure what 'thunderpants face' means in this context.
    I read about the word, thunderpants, from Urban Dictionary:
    a person who fart very loud.
    and I also read that this word is from the English movie, Thunderpants.
    But I don't quite understand the word in this context below.
    A person who makes a display of farting loudly

    What do you think?

    "God knows what she's up to. What if she gets pregnant with that lad?"
    Pregnant?! But I forgot the silent button.
    Dad comes out into the corridor and sees me at the top of the stairs
    and say, "You'd better come down."
    So I stomp downstairs with my thunderpants face on and yell at Mum.

    [I can only guess that it means that he had the expression on his face that normally preceded a display of flatulence.

    I don't think it's a common idiom. From the context, it seems that 'she' is the narrator and that she simply has an expression of anger on her face.
