In Reply to: Mickey Mouse posted by Graham langford on September 28, 2003
: In recent discussion with some work colleges from Australia, we struck upon the phrase "It's Mickey Mouse" and it turns out that they use this phrase to mean its good, and we use it to mean is bad.
: Has anybody else come across this?
Here in the US the phrase does not mean "good" or "bad".
It is usually an adjectival phrase meaning "insignificant" or "petty" as in:
"There are so many mickey mouse rules and regulations here".
