In fact, the earliest version of this idiom was the reverse: in the 1400s, people were “making bones about it” when they wanted to raise a fuss. The idiom appears to be related to soup, with the idea being that soups with bones in them were difficult and unpleasant to swallow, while soups which had been strained to remove the bones could be smoothly consumed. When someone made bones about something, he or she was indicating a difficulty with accepting or swallowing it.
