Phrases And Their Origins

Not On Your Nelly

"Not On Your Nelly" simply means "No", but emphatically. If someone says "Not On Your Nelly" to you, you know it's a definite "no" rather than a "not really" or a "well, if you twist my arm...".

But why use this curious expression? What is a Nelly? And why does something not have to be on it to mean "no"?

Winner gets a date with Nelly Furtado.

Addendum:

Sorry - correction to the above.... The LOSER gets a date with Nelly Furtado

Colin:

This phrase can be traced back to a drunken best man speech at a wedding in Leeds. Bob, the best man, was recounting the groom's sexual exploits for the wedding guests, to the obvious pain of the bride, Nelly, and groom, Frank. The high point of the speech was the story concerning Frank's involvement with a young woman who was heavily into sexual role playing and S&M. In particular, she like to be mounted (from the rear) and ridden around while being flayed with a crop. "She was a bit of all right, Frankie, coulda rode her from here to London and back"

Frank, to try and divert everyone's attention, said "Hey Bob, we're going to see Leeds at the Spurs in a couple of weeks, how the hell are we getting there?" To which Bob replied, "Not on your Nelly"
