I've always heard that if you put a nail into a container of Coca-Cola the soda can actually dissolve the nail. I never put much faith into that statement thinking it was an old wives tale. Now, I'm starting to think all those old wives tales are actual facts.

PepsiCo, makers of Pepsi and Mountain Dew, is being sued by Ronald Ball of Wisconsin, who claims in a 2009 lawsuit that he opened a can from a vending machine, tasted something foul, and spat out a dead mouse, acccording to MadisonRecord.com.

Ball, who is seeking damages in excess of $50,000, claims he then sent the mouse to Pepsi for examination, but they destroyed the mouse's body instead.

However, Pepsi is now moving to dismiss the case, citing testimony from an expert who claims that acid used when the drink is bottled would have caused the rodent to transform into a "'jelly-like' substance," according to LegalNewsline.com.
