green broke
 adj.— «The afflicted victim has the urge to buy a horse and the only way to lick the dreaded malady is to attend a horse sale.…Since the subject had been brought up I asked in a quieter voice, “Is he broke?” The fat man replied that he was “green broke.” I explained to my wife it was a generic term meaning “NOT REALLY.”» —“It’s The Pitts: Green Broke (Best Of)” Cattle Network Mar. 3, 2008.
