Pepsi’s Lawsuit Defense: Mtn. Dew Would Dissolve a Mouse Carcass

Pepsi’s legal team has come up with an unlikely defense in the case of an Illinois man who claims to have found a dead mouse in his can of Mountain Dew: the drink would have dissolved the remains long before the can was opened.

The victim’s complaint states that he sent the mouse to Pepsi, who proceeded to destroy the remains after he allowed them to be tested. Furthermore, Pepsi’s lawyers apparently found experts who will testify, based on the state of the remains, that “the mouse would have dissolved in the soda had it been in the can from the time of its bottling until the day the plaintiff drank it.” Pepsi also chimed in by saying that it would have become a “jelly-like substance.”

So, basically Pepsi is admitting that Mountain Dew is, at best, a massively unhealthy can of pure acid—but you already knew that.
