    Your word pairs puzzle helped me out with this one, otherwise I would probably still be trying to work out the answer.

    Slight <img src=/S/pirate.gif border=0 alt=pirate width=22 height=18> here, but you may have inadvertently solved the "Mickey Mouse" discussion of a while back. Some thought of a Mickey Mouse job as a pretty shoddy piece of work, while others (me included) had been used to it meaning precise or exacting. Perhaps the Mickey Mouse = grouse (very good) Aussie rhyming slang is where the difference in interpretation lies.
