There’s a Journal of Internal Medicine paper doing the rounds of the internet which describes the curing of hiccups using “digital rectal massage”. The thing is this shouldn’t really be a surprise to anyone, even the internet. What sometimes seems another life time ago I accidentally collected hiccup cures beginning with my favourite, a spoon full of vinegar. The thing is back in 2006 that paper actually took a share of an Ig Nobel.
There’s nothing new really—we know, if you have persistent hiccups try sticking a finger up your arse; though I still think the alternative recommendation of an orgasm sounds better.
