Vic Mackey-ing

verb. Forceful action, bearing little resemblance to the process known as "Mother Theresa-ing".

Real citation: "If I had friends who watched The Shield, we’d probably have an inside joke—a phrase, maybe, wherein we’d say that one could 'Vic Mackey' something. Vic Mackey-ing something would involve the commandeering or confiscating of an object by force, though not necessarily by the violent means which said character generally resorts to on the show, and almost certainly with less brutalizing of minorities."

Made-up citation: "As of this moment, I am Vic Mackey-ing the bathtub. These rubber duckies just can't handle the freedom."
