One comment on “Wish You Were Here, from Hans Horina

  1. "Bones a week" was recognized slang for weekly pay — Googled and found a couple of dated instances mixed in with dozens of articles about how many bones you should allow your dog. A 1911 article held up twenty bones a week as an example of lousy remuneration for a bookkeeper, so guessing 4 bones a week places this card as much earlier.

    I know I've seen "bones a week" in old fiction, but I don't think I've ever seen "bones" used for dollars in any other context.
