Another wild "brokeback"

I just collected an example of _brokeback_ almost identical to
what I recently reported, and thought I should share.

I was having an (online) conversation with an English friend,
who teased me about the supposed Anglophilia I manifest in my
dress, so I said, "Well, I'm getting a motorcycle to counter
my image as an effete fop," and he replied, "A motorcycle?
How brokeback!"
