Not my use of a Brokieism, but here's a post of mine from the In the New Yorker Thread:

This isn't a Brokieism per se...  :)

But I will say that I've been thinking of Ennis a lot lately - 

Ennis in the trailer after Alma Jr drives away.
Ennis avoiding Jack's eyes when they first encounter each other outside Aguirre's trailer.
Ennis sitting at the table with Ma & Pa Twist.
Ennis dashing down the stairs after those 4 fuckin' years.
Ennis and all the nights he spent in that trailer, pissing in the sink and not needing nothing 'cause he's got nothing.
Ennis Ennis Ennis...

I don't know.

My two children inadvertently participated in Brokeisms while my daughter was visiting yesterday to use the kitchen to cook dinners for later on when her baby arrives. She rapidly filled up the garbage can, unpackaging all the food, and asked my son to empty it for her. It can be kind of tricky getting the plastic bag out of the garbage can because when you lift the handles of the bag, the can comes with it. Someone needs to pull the can away or otherwise shake or kick it to break the suction. My son chose the last option since I was standing there amusedly watching him instead of helping. "If I had four hands, it'd be easy!" he said. I got a flash of him juggling two crying children and wondered if, as the uncle, he'd be doing just that in a few years!

Later on, with large bags of food safely stored in the freezer, my eight-months-pregnant daughter asked for, and got, a footrub from her brother.  :)

This one isn't exact, but it's close.

Last night I was chatting on line with someone who purported to be a rodeo jock. I asked him whether he rode bulls or horses, and he responded, "Broncs. But anyway, I said to him, "I don't rodeo myself. ..."

This is even more of a stretch because it doesn't involve saying anything, but Saturday night I did smarten up and go to the church social.  ;D

(Actually, it was the retirement party for our assistant minister.)

We aren't a fire-and-brimstone crowd. ...  ;D

Last night, I said that something or other had "never come to pass."

For many years, my ex-husband has been joining four or five male friends for an annual ice-fishing expedition. This year, he asked to leave his car at my house while he was gone, and I said sure. He dropped off the car this morning and got picked up by a friend for the drive up north. While my ex was inside getting his gear, I chatted out front with his friend.

ME: Well, good luck with the fishing!

FRIEND: We don't go up there to fish.

 :o :o :o

What I think he actually meant was that they don't go up for the fishing, they go up for the drunken camaraderie. But who knows?!
