Drink up

PepsiCo says Mountain Dew can dissolve a mouse. That’s one Hell of a legal defense there, guys.

    They also say it is like a can of battery acid…

  2. Dubber 308 Says:

    Am I the only one tempted to go out and buy some Mountain Dew and a few mice to try this out? Might make an interesting experiment for a friend’s home-schooled kids.

    No different than Coke or other colas – MD drinker πŸ™‚

  4. JDS Says:

    Sounds like a challenge.

  5. Nomen Nescio Says:

    that’s been true since forever. i used to hear of kindergarten teachers dissolving some of their students’ (donated) baby teeth in glasses of coke as a demonstration of how bad soda was for them, back when i was just fresh out of kindergarten myself.

  6. Nolan Says:

    The news here: soda is acidic. If you read the article, it says it would become a “jelly-like substance,” not “the mouse would be gone with no trace”. Sure, soda’s bad for you, but bad titles to articles can be misleading.

  7. Cargosquid Says:

    Ban sodas! Do it for the mice! And the chillun! And the mice chillun! (But go ahead…dissolving rats is ok.)

    Or at least those eeeeevil assault sodas, especially those 20 and 32oz sodas! Why does anyone NEED more than 12 oz?

  8. junyo Says:

    Um, yeah. Your stomach has some fairly nasty acids in it already.

    That MD can destroy a mouse carcass strikes me as gross, but not really that big of a deal. It’s full of citric and carbonic acid, as are most sodas. Coke will clean the living crap (pun intended) out of a toilet if you leave it for a few days. Regular OJ is around pH 3, MD is pH 3.3, Coke Classic is around 2.5, gastric acid is around a 1.

    Is Pepsi in trouble in Illinois?

    Buying a bottle of Drano won’t be the same in Illinois beginning Sunday.

    A new state law requires customers purchasing products containing sodium hydroxide, or lye, and other corrosive chemicals to show a legitimate photo ID and to write their name, address and date of birth. And the store clerk will log the time and date of purchase

  10. Cargosquid Says:

    So now its the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, Explosives, and Sodium Hydroxide?

    While you’re picking up test mice, try putting one in a closed jar of plain water for a few weeks. By the extremely popular line of reasoning, we’d all be drinking canned formaldehyde, because mice don’t decay in it. And I think you have to sign for that, too.

    Horatio Nelson’s body was borne home in a cask of brandy.

  12. cargosquid Says:

    Ban hydrogen hydroxide! Bring back Di-hydrogen Monoxide!

    Save the mouses!

    Ok…I think its time for coffee….

    No one needs more than a six pack of soda at a time said Mayor Bloomberg at a press conference to close the deli loophole.

    People are buying cases of Coke and Mountain Dew in Mini Marts in Georgia and North Carolina and selling them out of the trunks of cars in NYC according to Bloomberg.

    He said that a tourist from the south who attempted to bring an RC in to Radio City Music Hall would be denied bail he had anything to do about it.

  14. Sid Says:

    Cases of Cokes to be California legal have to be sold in a 10 pack.

  15. Dan Says:

    So can water if you leave it in there long enough. The question is “How fast did it dissolve?”. Looks like Mythbusters has another job!

  17. Nomen Nescio Says:

    somebody else found this link and posted it on another blog. i’d guess that a single can of soda wouldn’t be enough to dissolve the entire rodent, but hey — how hard could it be to find out in practice? you can buy mice pre-killed…

  18. fucema Says:

    @Gerry reminds me of an actual law in DC that bans the sale of single cans of beer.

    So what do the corner shops sell instead? 2 packs of beer.

    Gotta love stupid laws, and the stupid assholes who make them.

  19. Mayor Joel Stoner Says:

    The main ingredient of Mountain Dew is Orange Juice, which contains citric acid. sounds like someone is trying to frivolously sue pepsi.

  20. Old NFO Says:

    Considering what Coke can dissolve, I’m really not surprised πŸ™‚

  21. homebru Says:

    @ Cargosquid : I think it becomes the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, Explosives, and Lie^H^H^HLye.

  22. Shawn Says:

    I know a guy who literally does not drink anything but mountain dew… Not even water, he gets his water from the water in Mountain Dew. He has no teeth and the mountain dew was a direct culprit.

    Personally I can’t stand the stuff.

  23. Matt in AZ Says:

    Statistically speaking this is totally in the realm of possibility and I’m pretty sure the hair would still be there even if the mouse is jello. Man, you’ve got to love first world problems.

    Hey Hosers, it’s the Bob and Doug MacKenzie / Elsinore Beer scam!

    Friends don’t let friends Do the Dew.
