Yeah, same here. Why, though, C C?  

The word SOUP is more frequently used.  Double that of SOAP.  Maybe it’s because the letter A is more frequently used than U.

To my knowledge, priming usually takes some time or distraction from the priming to when it is invoked, in order to be effective. The priming cues have to be given time to sift into the subconscious (fall out of conscious thought/memory), where they then become fertile for random recall. It's the same reason the Libet experiments against free will were mistaken. When anyone is ask for a random answer, their subconscious gears up to provide them with one from its catalog of recent cues.
