What is the secret to horking up phlegmballs?

Seriously - would someone please enlighten me? Does it involve meditation? Deep breathing exercises? How come guys are so good at this?

Right now, I'm on Day 6 of my cold - near the end - with that annoying phlegmy cough/post-nasal drip and I don't know how to hork up the phlegmballs!

Does anyone remember the toll-free number to order the Lungbrush?

I guess it's one of the few good things about having a male body. We have some sort of kick-out reflex, or a different lung-to-nose-to-palate ratio than women do. We can raise it up from the lungs to the palate, or we can drag it through the sinuses to the palate. Maybe our horkin' passageways are slightly wider, to make for easier phlegm travel.

However, we also don't smell anywhere near as good as women do, we sweat more, and our facial hair is out of control, so it would be a heck of a trade-off just to spit up a few frogs.

On the other hand, if I had a woman's body, I'd just stay home all day and stand naked in front of a full-length mirror a lot.
