Clarke appeared to have his tongue firmly in cheek when he reeled off the 11 English names he expects to start at the Gabba, although any intention to further stoke up the pre-Ashes verbal battle was just as apparent.
England have so far opted to steer clear of the Aussie mind games - led by former leg-spinner Shane Warne - and Broad was in no mood to entertain Clarke's latest effort after he took three wickets on the first day of England's final warm-up game against an Australia Invitational XI at the SCG.
"I've not seen much of it to be honest. I don't know the side and I'm pretty close to the skipper so I don't know how the Aussie skipper knows," he told Sky Sports News.
"It's a bit like a boxing bout, there's a few mind games and people talking. We don't need to get too involved in a brawl, we're just happy boxing our way through the series and making sure we play good cricket.
"When you come to Australia you expect certain things to go on."
Broad may have expected plenty of talk to be centred on him, after his sometimes controversial summer, but said he was still waiting for the baiting to begin.
"Everyone has been brilliant so far," he said.
"I've been looking around for a bit but nothing has come.
"It's an amazing place to tour. The crowds we have played in front of so far have been very respectful of the cricket we've played and enjoyed it from what we heard out in the middle.
"It might be different story at the Gabba in a week but we are prepared for that as a team. If you come over here as an English cricketer and don't get some abuse you are doing something wrong.
"We are prepared for that and almost looking forward to it."
After their previous tour game in Hobart was almost completely ruined by rain England were glad to get a full day's play today as the hosts finished 271 for five.
England had claimed all their wickets early on, the Invitational XI were at some stage 93 for five, before Ryan Carters (94 not out) and Peter Nevill (76no) combined in an unbeaten 178-run stand.
"It was good for us to have 90 overs out there today," Broad said.
"We started really well. It was a little bit green this morning so there was a little bit of help out there for the seam bowlers. But once the sunshine got on the wicket half and hour after lunch it just did nothing.
"It was good to get those five wickets early and we maybe should have got a couple more. We didn't do a lot wrong, it was a good time to bat in those last couple of hours and it is up to us to come back tomorrow and apply some pressure."
Steven Finn claimed the other two wickets to fall, to press his claims for the third seamer's role in the first Test.
Finn appears to be in a shoot-out with Chris Tremlett - rested for this match - and Boyd Rankin, who returned none for 60 from 20 overs at the SCG.
Broad said he was unaware if Finn and Rankin were involved in a bowl-out, or if Tremlett had already been earmarked.
"I actually haven't got a clue," he said.
"We haven't played a huge amount of cricket on this tour so it has been hard to force your hand.
"We've got some talent in the squad that's for sure. It's great to have so much depth and to have some selection conundrums. We know we have guys who can step into Test cricket when there are question marks over guys."
