Man Cures Friend's Hiccups By Shooting Him In The Face
It worked. No more hiccups. Ever.
A soldier trying to scare another soldier out of hiccups shot his comrade in the face, killing him, authorities said Tuesday. [...]
"The victim had the hiccups. The suspect pulled out a gun to scare him in order to stop the hiccups," said spokesman Carroll Smith of the Killeen, Texas, Police Department.
Note to self: while effective, gunshots are not a recommended treatment for hiccups.
