Not on your Nelly

Not on your Nelly is a British idiom meaning certainly not!

Would you go out with him?

Not on your Nelly.

Rumour has it that it comes from Cockney rhyming slang

Not on your smelly breath

breath of life

Not on your life

On a fresher note, how about a nice bit of Nelly Furtado?
