Mr. B.- My dear, I got a proposal for you. Do you want to hear? Mrs. B. - Of Course my dear, but I'm to tired to listen to your usual rants, so reduce your proposal to its bare bones... and be fast, because in twenty minutes I'm going to watch 'Bones' on tv.
Once I heard a classical trained dancer (species I consider the most endangered of all,because of all their trauma to the 'bones')... tell she adored 'Bones' because watching at pieces of dead people (above all skeletons) reminded her that she could leave to science a very freaky skeleton... above all strange deformed feet.
