Is this anything like, "take the piss out"? Comment by: Stu   
A Mickey Finn (or simply Mickey) is a slang term for a drink laced with a drug (especially chloral hydrate) given to someone without their knowledge in order to incapacitate them. Serving someone a Mickey Finn is most commonly referred to as slipping a mickey, sometimes spelled "slipping a mickie". (Wikipedia) Comment by: Kathy   
Yes Stu, it's a more polite way of saying "taking the piss (out of someone)". Comment by: Jennifer   
A humorously polite variation is to 'extract the Michael'. Comment by: Gairlochan    Rated:5/5
