In The Professional, the cop character yells, “I don’t have time for this Mickey Mouse bullshit!!
When mechanics or tradesmen notice something Jimmy-Rigged or put together with duct tape and rubber bands, they will often say, “Somebody Mickey Moused this!!”
Why is Mickey Mouse associated with substandard work and being a clusterfuck? I would think Goofy or Donald Duck would better fit the category of being stupid and full of shit??
Plus what’s wrong with Mickey Mousing something anyway? You’re being a MacGyver!! You’re putting it together using what you have! You should be praised for getting it to work with a toothpick and a rubber band!!
If you repaired your transmission with a tennis racket, I would say you’re a genius, not a Mickey Mouse!!
