You see, “poop” here is actually a metaphor. All creatures, like it or not, must somehow find a way to release the waste built up in their bodies; the common solution being to produce fecal matter. However, if these creatures were not living, they would stop producing waste.
The phrase here, “Do you poop?” is not a query of whether or not one produces fecal waste, but rather, if they are still able to. Meaning, that, they are in reality asking, “Are you alive?” which, in itself, presents a variety of possible meanings.
What is it like to truly live? What is the meaning of life? How do we know that we still live?
However, it is also notable that, upon death, many living creatures lose control of their bowels, and produce large amounts of fecal matter upon losing their lives.
This means that besides asking about life itself, this phrase also asks about death and the life after, if there is such a thing.
Just what happened?
I love you guys.
One Piece fandom, I love you.
