Suck on liquid from a straw, and pull your two ears.

This was the weird advice that my assistant gave me when I had a nasty, on-going case of the hiccups. I wasn't sure if my assistant was trying to make me look crazy, or if she was genuinely trying to help me fight the worst beast known to [wo]man: Hiccups.

Needless to say, I tried it (it was on a Monday so my brain was still fuzzy from the weekend), and of course it did NOT work.

Hiccups are the worst to get: they are painful, loud, obnoxious, and stay on you like a obsessive ex boyfriend. The article below has great, useful tips on getting rid of the Hiccup beast. Read this article and I promise there won't be a need to do anything ridiculous like pulling your ears while sucking on a straw.
