Mike's mess is a trick invented by Mike Day where every throw and every catch is made under the arm. In between throws, the arms are uncrossed and then re-crossed the other way, in a movement similar to the club swinging move "cross and follow". The objects are thrown on the outside of the pattern and caught on the inside. This pattern can be thought of as Mills mess done in the siteswap 522 with the 5s thrown under the arm.
