Cough it over

This brilliant little gem was uttered accidentally by my neighbor and friend, Char Stone.  It is a nice congruent conflation of “cough it up” and “hand it over”, both meaning to produce or present something.  Both phrases have three words, share the word “it”, and contain direction words.  Also, one generally puts a hand over a cough to prevent germs from spreading, perhaps adding to the confusion.  It’s also a nice phrase to use when watching a cat attempt to cough up a hairball.  Thanks Char for this one!
