File under interesting legal defense but bad PR: Attorneys for PepsiCo (PEP +0.4%) fighting a legal battle against a man who claims to have found a dead mouse in a can of Mountain Dew, puts forth the disturbing theory that the case is without merit because the firm's drink would've dissolved the dead mouse before it could be found.

    If the facts prove he was lying, the company should counter-sue.

    Before you judge Pepsi too harshly, know that this claim of finding a mouse inside a can comes up much too frequently. One guy claimed emotional distress as he imagined that he had killed Mickey Mouse! In the past the company settled. I guess it has now reached the end of its tolerance.
