Why is a hiccup called a 'hiccup'?
I had the hiccups once and then it was st in my mind.
Because you would sound really dumb calling a hiccup a rhinoceros. Make sense now? Yes? Good
why is anything called what it's called... That's just the way life is....
Its like an onomonopia
Google 'hiccdown' and see what you get. Probably not much that makes sense.
