Ewh, ewh, ewh, a man who claims he found a dead mouse in his can of Mountain Dew may have an uphill battle proving it after Pepsi Co are adamant the rodent would have dissolved to jelly long before the drink touched his lips. Ronald Ball, who is suing the soft drink giant said he bought the Mountain Dew from a vending machine in 2009 but when he took a swig he instantly tasted something foul and spat the contents out. Low and behold what he spat out was a dead mouse. Mr Ball sent the remains to the Pepsi company who did the usual tests but concluded that the mouse would have dissolved in the soft drink had it been inside from the time of bottling to when he drank it. Oh dear there goes that $50,000 he was seeking in damages. As for Mountain Dew….it can dissolve a mouse?

Oh dear god, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration are investigating claims a dead mouse was found in a can of Diet Pepsi. A guaranteed way to lose weight I say.Fred Denegri knew something was up when he thought his Diet Pepsi tasted weird. After pouring the contents out he discovered to his horror that his drink also contained the body of a mouse. Well, any consolation, at least it was dead! A spokesman for Pepsi said “It is virtually impossible for this type of thing to happen in a production environment,”. Seems unless it was speedy Gonzales there was no way in hell a rodent could get into their 1,250 cans a minute manufacturing process. It’s a job for David Copperfield.
