[Do The Right Thing]

From the dubbed version of Spike Lee’s Do The Right Thing which appeared on Time Warner Cable. A local public access guy named “Jeff” taped the section when Radio Raheem goes into the Korean deli to buy batteries for his boom box (bb-b-b-b). Every time one of them says “motherfucking” or “motherfucker,” it comes out “mickificki.” A quick mental calculation estimates that “mickificki” appeared in the TWCable version about 560 times. Useful for situations when someone does something slightly annoying/clumsy. Engage Martin Lawrence-style head tilt, bug eyes out: “Get your mickificki foot off my toe, mickificki!”
