At first, I thought this news was a joke, but nope. It's real. An Illinois man sued Pepsi back in 2009 after he claimed he "spat out the soda to reveal a dead mouse", the Madison County Record reported.

The man sent the mouse to Pepsi Co. where they "destroyed" the remains after he allowed them to test it, according to his complaint. Pepsi's lawyers, however, found experts to testify on the matter based on the state of remains sent to them, where they said:

 

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.

 

Pepsi added that it would've been a "jelly-like" substance. Imagine this going to trial, imagine being in the jury of this court case. I don't think I'll ever be drinking a can of Mountain Dew again.
