TRUTH !!
twenty-eight year old pig farmer Charles Osborne of Athon, Iowa, was in the process of weighing a hog for slaughter when he was beset with hiccups that didn't stop for 68 years. Despite hiccupping forty times per minute in the early years, he married and had two children (the rate slowed to about twenty per minute in the later years). His hiccups finally stopped in 1990, but Osborne died within a year. He had hiccupped an estimated 430 million times.
