To get rid of hiccups take a drink of water hold it in your mouth plug your ears and swallow the water. Works every time.
From The HBHW:
Great tip, thanks for sharing. My daughter brought home another one from school a few weeks ago. A friend at showed her when she had a bad case of the hiccups in class.
Stand on one leg while patting your head and rubbing your belly in a circular motion.
Works great as well… I think concentration on so much at any given time forces your body to forget about hiccuping.
