To Pull A Boner

The expression “to pull a boner” comes from the old American Minstrel shows. There was a man in these shows who was called Mr. Bones. He was called Mr. Bones because he carried two small sticks of bones that he used as an instrument. He was asked questions by one of the other men in the show, just to get stupid but funny answers. This became known as “pulling boners.”The word “bone” or “boner: means mistake. I have no idea why, but assume it is from the old American Minstrel shows.
Well, it seems Boner is back, and this time in the forum of the legend of Boner Billy and his faithful sidekick CHUBBY. Mr. Boner Billy was a cowboy, friend to the stars of Hollywood and a restaurateur. With rumors of him dating Marilyn Monroe, Elvis’s personal Chef, and the guy who helped Frank develop his a velvet voice.  It seem that Boner Billy had it all. The story is, that when Boner retired to a town he founded (Bonerville) he opened and ran a successful restaurant. Today we can all enjoy not only Boner Billy’s famous line of Hot Dogs, but funny t-shirts that help celebrity this legendry American hero.
This is when it starts to get good. Take the name of food items right off the menu and it is easy to see where this is going… Boner Billy’s offers a 12 inch Hot and Juice Bonner, Hot Dog (named after Mr. Billy himself). With the Hot Dog, you will want to get the t-shirt that reads “I had a big Boner for lunch, or want the shirt that reads, “Wrap your lips around my big hot Bonner”. I guess you see where this continues to go. There is even a Hot Dog on the menu named after Boner Billy’s faithful sidekick, CHUBBY. Well I guess you know they have a t-shirt promoting the CHUBBY as well. The fun goes on and on. With a name like Boner, selling a big Hot Dog named after himself to a sidekick named CHUBBY, what’s next?  Well there is the “Morning Wood” that is a breakfast delight. The “Hummer” the standard sized dog. The “Bonerkraut Kochherde” Boner Billy’s famous Chubby in a bed of Sauerkraut. My personally favorite is the “Angry Inch” which is an inch long corndog treat.
I personally got a kick out of all the t-shirts offered that added up to around 15 fanny saying in all. I had to also pick up a “Boner Time” cap and a great coffee cup for the office. They have beef jerky, “Jerky, Jerky” that was great as well. If you can’t make it out to one of Boner Billy’s mobile (Boner-mobiles) stands you will not wait long, as Boner Billy’s is being offered up as a franchise. In the mean time, you can view and purchase those crazy Boner-t shirts at Boner Billy’s official web-site bonerbillys.com
