    According to KWCH, police appeared and, after a thorough investigation, they realized the "bomb threat" was really just a man in a bathroom stall warning others about the severity of his need to use the restroom.

    The exact words of the mystery pooper were, "You all need to get out of here because I'm fixin' to blow it up." One witness laughed and said he took it as a joke. Obviously, others didn't.

    When police tracked down Mr. Poop, he said it was all a misunderstanding.

    Which is great, but also the real questioning should have been about whether or not he washed his hands afterwards.

    That's it. I think we all learned a very valuable lesson today. Don't use the term "blow it up" when describing your "poop bomb" in public!

    In all seriousness, you should never take the term "blow it up" lightly.
