Sentence: Mr. Deadness Debarker resigned from the police force to finally pursue his dream of becoming a famous detective. From this moment forward, he would become Mr.Debarker the mysterious investigator of justice. Today he would make his first appearance to the busy world of crime, and scope out any injustice that lurked the streets. Everything was going well…. UNTIL… THE STAIN !!! Debarker found a small smudge of ink on his tuxedo; he immediately entered into a fit of rage. He micomanically scrubbed the stain, but in the end all was in vain. There was no way he could operate with a smudge on his tuxedo, it would be unforgiveable. So, Mr. Deadness Debarker decided to abandon that dream, and pursue the life of a giant lemon; he lived the rest of his days in a sour manner.

Etymology: Mico (Latin verb)-to shine. Manically (adverb)-characterized by excessive or unreasonable enthusiasm.
