Say Purple to cure hic-ups

To cure hiccups, take a deep breath and say the word PURPLE slowly as you breath out. I've tried it with other colours but purple is the only one that works!

Not only is it my fave color but saying it cures my hiccups too.

TipKing Says: Wow. I must admit I thought this was one of the wackier tips.

I was skeptical about taking a deep breath and slowly say the word "PURPLE" when breathing out, but oh my goodness, my hiccups were INSTANTLY cured. As dumb as it sounds, it really works!! At least for me it does.... You try...

I was stuck at work whn I got the hiccups, so I didn't have access to sugar or vinegar. This worked right away!

The first time I heard I was like "Whatever!"

This does work, and you don't even have to say it slowly. Just say the colour like you mean it, if ya get what I mean?
