In brief: Colitis

There are a group of inflammatory bowel diseases that produce mucous.
They include, but are not limited to ulcerative colitis (usually with bloody mucous some of the time), crohn's disease, and infection.

In brief: Response 2 something

Sudden gas and mucous are a reaction to the bowels to something.
If that is all that's happening, it may just be a reaction to food or something ingested.Especially if other symptoms such as pain, fever or bleeding exist, be seen as those could be signs of a serious problem like infections, allergies, colitis.

In brief: Pass Gas & Mucus

The passing of gas and mucus are common signs of "food poisoning, " or some kind of infection.
It usually clears up in a few days. There are some other GI diseases that also present this way that are not infectious. If the symptoms don't clear in a day or two and/ or you notice blood in the stools, develop a fever, or experience intermittent or constant lower abdominal pain, see your doctor.
