Today, I thought it would be funny to sneak up behind my cat and scare it with a loud "boo!" The cat responded by jumping up, and running across my apartment, which would have been fine, except for the fact she left a trail of liquid shit everywhere she went. FML

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.
