The Man Who Continuously Hiccuped for 68 Yrs

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

In the early 1980s, there was an obscure cartoon character by the name of Mr. Hiccup. A little, greenish-tinted man who wore a tie and a fedora, Mr. Hiccup had a "normal life, a normal job, and a normal home," yet endured a "not-so-normal" dilemma: despite his sincerest efforts over the course of 39 episodes, he couldn't stop hiccuping.

While Mr. Hiccup was humorous and lighthearted, the fictional character's plight is actually a very real problem: at any given time, physicians estimate that some 1,000 people in the United States suffer the intolerable hell that is chronic hiccups.
