Pick the bones out of that

"Pick the bones out of that"

I'm an editor based in Munich and have been searching for a good definition and origin of this phrase (above) - it seems to be becoming increasingly popular (I even found it a couple of times in Hansard).

Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks in advance!
