Diet Dr. Pepper

I occasionally enjoy a can of Diet Dr. Pepper at work. I began to notice some very strange behavior if the cola was not chilled in the fridge (i.e. taken directly from the case under my desk). I don't shake it up, the cans are at room temperature, and no mentos are involved. I give you Exhibit A:
Anyone else notice Diet Dr. Pepper acting strange at room temperature?

    Make sure it’s room temperature – if it’s cold it behaves normally!

    Just performed the experiment with several co-workers waiting in anticipation and the results were disappointing, no overflowing Dr. Pepper. However, my can was stored upright at room temperature and not on its side.

    That’s odd – maybe I just have a very carbonated case?! Wish there was someone we could ask… perhaps some Doctor out there that might be able to explain this…

    “Oh Dr. Pepper, why do you taste so good and yet bubble so much?”

    That’s what I was thinking except that my can was un-carbornated – as it didn’t taste very good, but maybe that was because it was at room temp.

    I think the real mystery here, Mikey, is why you are drinking a diet beverage in the first place.
