What does Bones mean?

‘Bones’ in slang refers to ‘Dollars’

Ever heard someone say they’ve got a few ‘bones’ to spare? They’re not talking about their skeleton! They are actually referring to their money, specifically their dollars. So, if someone mentions they have 5 bones, they mean they have 5 dollars.

Just like other slang terms for money like ‘scratch’, ‘paper’, or ‘dough’, ‘bones’ is another casual way people talk about their cash. It’s a fun way to keep the conversation light and friendly.

And don’t be confused if you hear someone say they have a ‘bone’ instead of ‘bones’. They’re still talking about money, but in this case, they are referring to a single dollar. It’s all about context and numbers when it comes to this slang term.

So next time, when your friend Jack mentions he got a couple of bones from his recent job, don’t imagine him carrying around a bag of skeletal parts. He’s just casually telling you about the dollars he earned!
