Fecetious!

Someone mentioned to me today having recently seen this word in the Washington Post. Googling it yielded something like 370 unique hits—typically people using it just as one would use “facetious”. The question is: do some people have in mind, however consciously or unconsciously, a meaning connection with the word “feces”?
