I just yesterday used the "my parents was ..." Brokieism. Here, of course -- if I used it IRL people would wonder why I suddenly had bad grammar.

Yup, noticed it. I don't remember which thread it was, but I noticed it   8)

I cannot now say how long it's been, but this morning I actually had occasion to use a Brokieism!  :D

I was riding down in the elevator with a neighbor. He was lamenting the loss of view caused by the new high-rise that has gone up practically next door to our building. I share his sorrow, but this morning I said to him ... wait for it ... it's coming ... you know what I said ...

"If you can't fix it, you've got to stand it."
