What do British people mean when they say "mickey"? The new Harry Potter book has people "taking the mickey out of" each other, which sounds like they are teasing each other if I understand the context. In Irish slang that sounds like castration and none of the kids were drinking butterbeer at the time so I think the British have yet another meaning for the word.
