I used the term at work today saying that my keys had "took a Brodie" off my desk into a trashcan. I got the radio shack look. "What is a Brodie?" I explained.

Well, I always heard, that it was making the tires of a car spin creating tire marks going around in a circle or the same going around a curve.

Did it a few times in my stupid days of showing off in the 60s.

I had read that in your initial post. I posted the name of the person to whom the term was attributed to so others could look him up and learn that bit of history.
