Possible french translation[edit]

The website http://xref.w3dictionary.org/index.php?fl=en&id=21390 says the french translation of "to have a bone to pick" is “ont un os à prendre”. I ask a frenchman, please verify. I may have a very literal translation of an idiom. Khonkhortisan (talk) 06:36, 28 February 2012 (UTC)

The phrase seems to be very uncommon. I don't know it, and it's very difficult to find examples of use (an example : http://www.maisondujazz.be/fr/galerie/Fraize/Jampur.html). Anyway, it's not the same sense, not a translation of the English phrase as defined here. I found the same sense, but very probably coming from an automatic translation or something of the kind.
