It Turns Out Bob And Doug MacKenzie Couldn’t Scam Mountain Dew

Pepsi says you couldn't find a mouse in a can of Mountain Dew because the soda would melt the poor guy.

In 2009 an Illinois man sued PepsiCo saying that he opened a can of Mountain Dew and found the drink more disgusting than usual. Turns out there was a dead mouse in there; he went after the company to the tune of $50,000, which sounds pretty low end to me.

But PepsiCo is arguing that the man must be a liar. There's no way he could have found a mouse in a can of Mountain Dew. Not because of their high standards of cleanliness, but because any mouse in a can of that yellow stuff would have DISSOLVED IN THE CAN, becoming a 'jelly-like substance.' So no, there couldn't have been a mouse in there because the soda is so corrosive it would have DONE AWAY WITH THE MOUSE CORPSE. 

Now I'm imagining the Mouse Mafia using the Mountain Dew bottling plant as a place to dispose of whacked rodents.

The case is still ongoing. Pepsi is moving to dismiss.

Here's Bob and Doug MacKenzie showing you how to get free beer using only a dead mouse and a beer bottle.
