I have always wondered about the origin of this one. Commonly put down to Cockney rhyming slang - "I should coffee and cocoa”, meaning "I should say so". Most slang is better then that - it doesn't rhyme or even mean agreement - rather the opposite.

I had always supposed it was a reference to CoCo the clown - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nicolai_Poliakoff - ie ending up on the receiving end of something undesirable if you go along with whatever is being suggested.

Good to know I am spending a productive and useful retirement.
