Shitting while running away after being scared is a reflex common among mammals. The extraction of feces at high velocity provides a considerable speed boost the same way that throwing a rock would push you backwards sightly. Additionally, by removing the feces from the body, the animal becomes more lightweight and is able to flee with ease. A related, though separate phenomenon common to homosapiens, is where they make up arbitrary factoids related to a topic being discussed for humoristic effect, regardless of their accuracy.
