In brief: Maybe bile, fat

Pale, yellow, foul smelling.
Bulky, sticky stools can be seen with fat malabsorption , as may be seen with pancreatic disease, cystic fibrosis, celiac sprue, crohn's disease, olestra use, Alli use (with excess fat intake). Of course, yellow stool could just be that you ate a lot of carrots and squash. If it continues, if you have cramps, weight loss, nausea, pain, etc. See your doc.
