Looking for Skeleton Puns

Aside from "BONEFIED!", can anyone think of any good skeleton puns out there?

No. Just the bare bones, please.

and you're making no bones about it.

Hmm - I *suppose* there could conceivably be a transnational bit of post-accident surgery wherebyy the Nip bone was connected to the Thai bone?

Ye gods, if I typed that out loud, I *must* need more coffee (which might also explain why I don't understand the "bonefied" thing.)

Ah, given a time-machine - until about 25 ish years ago, you couldl not buy alchohol on a Sunday in Scotland unless you were a BONa fide traveller.

Hmm - or there might be a cooking disaster after which one was left with only "bone, bone, on the range".


Um, it's all right - I'll leave quietly!

I'm not thinking clearly because I'm running a femur.

Some people think I look like Pelvis Presley.

..these aren't puns, are they? Whatever they are, they're bad.

I'm asking if you want them to be rib-tickling, or just hip?

Why didn't the boy skeleton cross the road?

He didn't have the guts

Why didn't the girl skeleton cross the road?

She didn't have the balls

Would love to help and was asking within my immediate radius for ideas. The boss came up to ask me what I was doing and had to tell him a little fibula - he looked very sternum and walked away muttering. So I am sorry I won't be able to help - best of luck with your search.....

With average skull, I'd think you'd find yourself more than carpalable. Turn on the radius and relax.

I wish we could automate these puns. It's a pain to do them mandibally.

But could any computer possibly comprehend the stapes of jokemaking: timing and comic irrelevance?

I don't know, but I won't say it'll never happen. That could easily become a boner.

Boss has gone home now so I won't get the sacrum if I continue looking for puns. Still haven't thought of any yet though....

They told me I broke my tibia but that turned out to be a fibula.

The ultimate obvious dirty pun imperfectly recalled from Hustler Humor

Q: Why did the nympho date a skeleton?

SPOILER:
A: 'Cause he always had a boner for her.

A skeleton walks into a bar and says to the bartender, "Give me a beer.... and a mop."

Puns are part and tarsal of the skeleton. It's gauche to carpal puns. Now, I don't want to make too many ribs or someone will slap my coccyx.

My favorite: We were watching Army of Darkness. There's a scene where some skeleton warriors are dragging along some scantily-clad women in chains. My friend blurts out, "Look, that one has a boner!"

None of this makes any sense. Must be a clavicle error.

Where did all those bite marks on your shoulder come from?

Why can't skeletons play church music?

Because they don't have any organs.

Skeletons don't have a tendon, see, to stay together.

Stop SKULLking around, why are you depending on us for your rib ticklers?

It's like if theire was a young lady trying to choose a sex partner and in line she saw 5 naked men and one skeleton, she;'d dtake the skeleton because why settle for cocks 1-5 when coccyx will do?

Q How is a doctor feeling a baby's head like Ponce De Leon?

A He's looking for the Fontinelles of Youth
