I read this as "cleansing the world of poop culture" and nearly too scared to follow the link. Nearly.

After seeing the word "flush" y'all probably started thinking about toilet time...

Actually, it says "pop" on the right side of the page... but before the flushing image loads, there's a brief glimpse of an alternate image that indeed says "poop".

Your eyes did not deceive you.

But if you read the original pointer on this site as "poop", you were affected by mediated priming (reading one word in a sentence makes you think of another word later on in the sentence)

Ooh...I didn't know it had a name. Thanks, Matt!

Or, depending on what you've consumed prior to reading it, it could be medicated priming
