Mt. Dew Can Disolve A Rat. Sweet. I Think.

Let’s get a couple of things out of the way right off the bat. A) I like Mt. Dew a lot. It’s not a love, but a very strong “like”. Tasty, and gives me some energy, although I have NO idea why. 😉 B) I’m a diabetic, and really shouldn’t be drinking it. But I do. I know. One of these days there will be people holding a sign up for me at the entrance to the radio station with a “Shame on Craig” message for me.

Here is a reason I might, and I say might, stop drinking it. Pepsi is being sued because an Illinois man claims he found a rat carcass in a Mt Dew. He says he sent the rat to Pepsi, who he claims destroyed it. Pepsi, on the other hand, has an interesting defense to this lawsuit.

Pepsi’s lawyers claim, “”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,” (It would have become a “jelly-like substance,” according to Pepsi)

Well, that’s something. Kind of wondering if they thought that whole legal defense through. Maybe someone should have said “uh, this is going to make us look really bad either way!” I know you can clean old pennies of tarnish by soaking them in Coke, but didn’t know Mt Dew could eliminate rats. Wonder what it would do if i soaked in a tub full for a few days…hmmmm I HAVE been looking to drop a few pounds :)

Here’s the story from The Atlantic Wire “Pepsi Says Mountain Dew Can Dissolve Mouse Carcasses”
