This goes back, oh 10-20 years, to a Thanksgiving with what was then my family. Ladies at dinner were my late ex, her late mother (lot of it going around lately) and her cousin. Males were myself, my son, and the cousin's son. As will become apparent, the ladies were VERY naive.
The cousin's ex husband, Claus, had been a cook in the Army and was skilled with a carving knife. After the turkey was carved, the following conversation ensued.
Cousin: Did you ever see Claus bone a turkey?
My ex: Yes! Nobody bones a turkey like Claus bones a turkey!
[We three males look at each other and begin biting our lips].
Her mother: Yes, when Claus boned a turkey, it was a work of art.
Ex: What are you three chuckling about?
Me: Oh, uh, nothing really.
Cousin: When it came to boning a turkey, I've never seen anyone who could match him.
Ex's mother: His turkey boning was just an art.
Ex: What ARE you three laughing about? What's so funny?
Me: Don't mind ... uh ... I'll explain later.
Cousin: I remember one Thanksgiving. Claus had just gotten through boning the turkey, when....
Funny story! Thanks for the laughs David!
