Red Thread and Hiccups


Red Thread Hiccups

To celebrate our 225th anniversary, we’re looking through our archives to bring you 225 pieces of wit, wisdom, and fun in a series we’re calling Almanac Treasures (see more of them here).

To stop hiccups, wet a piece of red thread with your tongue, stick it to your forehead, and look at it.
