Bo Jackson suffers intermittent silence.

The multi-sport legend will undergo a procedure later this week to address a bout of chronic hiccups that have plagued him since July 2022, he said on Wednesday An appearance on “McElroy and Cubelic in the Morning” on WJOX-FM,

When asked about watching fellow Auburn legend Frank Thomas' Statue dedication at Plainsman Park in AprilThomas revealed that he didn't attend because he was busy dealing with the hiccup:

“I wasn't there because of dealing with the hiccups. I've had hiccups since last July and I'm having a medical procedure this weekend, I think, to try to cure it. I've been busy Sitting in the hospital with the doctor fucking me, shining a light down my throat, probing me in every way to find out why I had these hiccups, the only reason I wasn't there. “

He was later asked whether the doctors had found the cause of the condition. They didn't, and Jackson has clearly tried to range the treatment from cliché to, um, exotic:

“Hell no. I've done everything: scare me, hang upside down, drink water, smell a porcupine's ass. It doesn't work.”

It sounds like a miserable experience for the NFL Pro Bowler and MLB All-Star. Hopefully the process will take care of the issue, or else Jackson could end up in a history of chronic hiccups, leading Charles Osborne and his still-unexplained 68-year case of the hiccups,

The causes of hiccups can be incredibly vague with a wide range of possible causes, which usually aren't a problem if they go away after a few minutes, but it can make cases like Jackson's a true test.
