Hiccups for 68 years, an unbelievable record!


One of our Wake Up Wisconsin trivia questions asked what is the longest case of hiccups ever recorded? According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the answer is a whopping 68 years. Charles Osborn had the hiccups non-stop from 1922 to 1990.

It is estimated that he hiccuped over 430 million times in his lifetime. That got us talking about hiccup cures, what's yours?

Dani says she tries to ignore it, Lindsay does handstands and Brian--- well you just have to watch the video.
