UrbanDictionary has a number of defs. from 2003 for those who wish to pursue
the matter. See also "bone-snuggling."

Not being a watcher of _Jersey Shore_, I can't be sure precisely what _Mad_
magazine has in mind here:

2010 _Mad_ (Oct.) 40: Here's a picture we dug up of _Jersey Shore_
bone-smuggler Snooki.

That's my first encounter with the term.  The current editorial standards of
_Mad_, BTW, are far raunchier than the elderly may recall. Think _National
Lampoon_ instead.

The October _Mad_ cover featured the BP oil leak. The price of the issue
was "$5.99 CRUDE!"

Not "25c CHEAP!" which is how I remember it.
