    I'll tell you a weird one that actually works. At least it did for me. My neighbor turned me on to this. Take a corner of bread and put a glob of mayo or Miracle Whip on it, then eat. I have no idea why it works but it does!

    Using a paper cup of water, put a paper towel over the top and sip the water through the paper towel.   I don't know why it works, but it does.  My wife, the nurse, laughed at me when I suggested she try it years ago when she had the hiccups.  To her amazement, it worked.

      Wow--interesting.  I'll have to see if we have any paper cups on hand--I don't think so...probably plastic or styrofoam ...   wink

    hit your chest with your fist a few times after gulping down a glass of warm water. Don't spit out

      Okay--I'm guessing you should finish swallowing first, to avoid the spit-out... wink

    Shout at the victim to enrage him and you will see the hiccups gone as he also indulges in shouting.

      Similar to yelling "BOO!" or "LOOKOUT!" I guess--the sudden startle may be what does the trick.  Thanks for contributing.

    I've been told that drinking a glass of water upside down works. But my family's patented, sure-fire, never-fail cure is as follows:

    Fill a glass almost full with plain old tap water, not too hot, not too cold, just like Goldilocks porridge. Light a match, let it burn most of the way down, blow it out, and float it in the glass. Drink the water without letting the match stick touch your lips. Works every time smile

      Hahahaha...I tried the upside-down thing when I was a kid.  It doesn't work; you can't swallow--gravity wins, and it comes out your nose!  LOL
      But the matchstick one--that is strange.  Thanks for adding to the info.
