When I was a kid hiccups were a hilarious thing to get. It really annoyed the adults when you stood next to them with your mouth wide open so that the next one would be as loud as possible. The “cures” that I would see in cartoons (breathe in a paper bag, have someone scare you, anvil dropped on your head) never seemed to work in real life. The last time I got them I asked the internet how to get rid of hiccups and I was quite surprised that the first thing I tried actually worked.

Today’s Maximumble answers the call.
