Cliché: pass the buck

Meaning: avoid responsibility by passing it along to another (example 1, example 2)

Rewrite 1: pass the deal
Rewrite 2: pass the trouble
Rewrite 3: hand off the dynamite
Rewrite 4: string you some worry beads

Comment: The key to recasting this cliché is recognizing its origins and playing around with its essence, then try to take it as far from the original as possible.
