Can Mountain Dew do this?

Have you ever heard of an individual trying to sue a big-name company for something strange in the hope that they will get some money out of them? Well, you would find it difficult to find anything that is crazier than this case.

A man in the US attempted to sue Pepsi by stating that he found a mouse in his bottle of Mountain Dew. You might think that they would just settle out of court and offer him a small amount of money for it to go away but Pepsi had other ideas.

Ultimately, the man lost his court case and it was all thanks to Pepsi showing that his claims just were not possible.

To do this, they showed that a bottle of Mountain Dew would dissolve a mouse within 30 days. Yep, they actually did go ahead and prove that in a court of law. Furthermore, they also showed that the man had bought the bottle 74 days after it had been manufactured, so it was impossible for there to have been a mouse in his bottle.

You have to admit that this is pretty impressive, but at the same time it makes you wonder what may have been in the bottle that has now simply dissolved into the liquid.
