I've got one (another Lureenism)!

One time my band played at a club, and this guy kept talking my ear off, even after I told him I'm married, etc.  The show ended; he kept talking.  We put our instruments away; he kept talking.  Other customers cleared out; he kept talking.  Bar staff were cleaning up and putting chairs up on tables; he kept talking.  

Finally the drummer came up, wrapped his arms around me and said loudly,
"Honey, did you call the babysitter about the kids?"




I gave him a wide-eyed look and said, "I thought you were gonna call."

To me, anything counts as a Brokeism if when you see it, hear it, say it, do it, taste it, sing it or whatever.... somehow it reminds you of BBM.

Great definition of Brokieism, Sue!!    :D

Whenever I see my friends pensively looking through their mail, it reminds me, especially when they're stroking the postcards with their thumbs.

I agree 100%, even if I see a pick up truck with a guy in a cowboy hat, that is BBM for me. Cowboy boots, same thing.
One sad one for me just this week was when yet again I said I would take James back to England if we could not get him into a residential program, at least the other two would not then live in fear.
Nigel responded with, what good will that do.
Without even thinking about it, I responded, you got a better idea !
I never realised at the time it was a Brokieism not until I started to read this thread !

I was making pesto for pasta tonight. I didn't have the recipe anymore and was going by memory, so at first I put only 1/4 cup Parmesan in, when really it needs 3/4 cup.

It was bland and liquid-y.

"Pesto don't taste right," I said to my son.



OK, so Ennis wouldn't normally comment on pesto. I wouldn't normally use a plural noun with a singular verb. But together -- Brokieism magic!
