Rip Van Winkle has insomnia?

A US man named Rip Van Winkle is seeking medical attention – for his insomnia.

Mr Van Winkle, 37, of Corvallis, Oregon, admitted: “I went to the doctor’s office and the irony is incredible. My name is Rip Van Winkle, and I can’t sleep.”

He says his father and grandfather were both nicknamed Rip, after the fictional character who fell asleep for 20 years.
