So since this is a poop thread then here's a bit on seagulls.

Normally I'm not one for cruelty to animals (meaning senseless violence) but sometimes... sometimes poop happens. Especially with seagulls. Those bastards can shit like no bird I know and they did that regularly on the fantail of our carrier... and I got assigned to 'clean up detail' more than once (all snipe departments rotate that duty and my CPO and I had issues so I got the bum end). Found out that Seagulls can't burp. Who knew? Anyways, several of us swabbies headed to ship's PX to buy some alkyseltzer and divide the tablets into 4ths, then toss them up off the back of the deck and watch the gulls swoop down and snatch them out of mid air... then watch as they'd eventually >>>pop!<<< and fall into the sea. Sharks loved us... and we felt a bit of sweet revenge on the birds that gave us nothing but crap.
Which got me to wondering.... Is that how the old wooden ships coined the name, 'Poop Deck'???

Per wikipedia:

In naval architecture, a poop deck is a deck that forms the roof of a cabin built in the rear, or "aft", part of the superstructure of a ship. The name originates from the French word for stern, la poupe, from Latin puppis.

And here I thought it was just the logical place to build a shitter on an old sailing ship, don't want that jetsam getting smeared on the hull.

So the meaning of it being the rearmost part of a ship dates back to the 14th century. It was originally just poop, not the poop deck. And usage of poop to mean excrement was only seen around 1744. By ~1780 poop deck had completely replaced poop for the rear part of the ship.

Probably too many misunderstandings when asked to "Go swab the poop"
