how does having a teaspoon of vinegar cure hiccups?

Vinegar is such a vile taste that to swallow a teaspoon at once makes your whole body go, WTF? And it forgets about anything else it was doing.

Probably.

I believe that most of the reason any hicups cure works is because you believe that it will do, partly because of the ritual and partly because of the unusual nature of the cure. IIRC, no-one really knows why hiccups happen, but it’s basically an autonomous response that’s gone a bit nuts, and you almost have to distract your body away from it..
