This perfectly formed malaphor was uttered by a hospital nurse. It is a mash up of “hit or miss” (at random, haphazardly) and “touch and go” (chancy). Touching is just a mild form of hitting so I can see where the speaker became confused. The two phrases also describe a thing likely not to occur. Thanks to Deb Mande for hearing this one and sending it in!
This is a wonderful blend of “nip and tuck” (close race) and “touch and go” (dangerous or uncertain). It evokes a race that is close and the outcome uncertain, perhaps like the current presidential race. Then again, it could be describing an express plastic surgery center. I can see it now: “Excess body fat removed in 5 minutes!! Visit your neighborhood Nip and Go Center TODAY!”
