No bones

verb; clipping of the phrase "I have no bones!"
To embrace someone and then relax all muscles so that person must bare all of the weight. It is termed ‘no bones’ because when the person relaxes all his muscles, his full body weight must be supported by the other person, creating the sense that he has no bones to support himself.
 
“Brace yourself because I am about to no bones you!”
Etymology : Created as a metaphor for having no bones because the person goes limp, as if he has no way to hold himself up. The phrase “I have no bones!” could be exclaimed in this situation, so “no bones” is a clipping of that.
