It’s true: I can’t burp. I’ve been acutely aware of this deficiency ever since I was a kid, watching my friends down Cokes while letting off huge, belching thunderclaps. Everyone else in my family can burp, which my sisters have made painfully obvious at almost every family dinner, yet my throat has been silenced, for reasons unknown.

Is anyone else out there burpless? Have any of you been burpless and overcome it? How fun is burping? I demand answers!!!

Yes, it’s also true that rats can’t burp. Find out why by clicking here.
