13 Skeleton Jokes to Tickle Your Funny Bone

Bones. Calcium carbonate and calcium phosphate. Some of my favorite skeletons include that of Aaron Kelly from Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, the "Partytime" Skeleton from the 1985 film Return of the Living Dead, and of course Smitty Werbenjägermanjensen from the SpongeBob Squarepants episode "One Krabs Trash."
