Dead Mouse In McDonald's Coffee Story: A Brief Note

The only way it could have gone unnoticed the whole time is if it fell in the pot, drowned, and then sank to the bottom.  And that takes awhile; mice are strong swimmers.  So the takeaway message is: that coffee was not a fresh pot.  Very disappointed in McD's, who are usually better than this.  Very disappointed.

It could have died quite quickly from the heat. Mice are small and have little thermal inertia.
Still hard to imagine it drifting to the bottom. Dead mice float.

Maybe it had ebola. I have no truck with Facebook, but could someone who does post this entirely sound speculation there?
