    This is an old saying that dated way back to the start of the 1800s.

    During the gelatin riots of 1823, there was a shortage of gelatin in some of the gold mining towns in Colorado.

    Miners would come to town expecting a fine display of jelly wrastling amongst the fine ladies of the stage and public bars, only to find the local cowboys had already mussed up the sarsaparilla jelly wrastlin' their dang horses in the darned stuff.

    'NO HORSIN' AROUND'

    The signs went up on every telegraph pole outside the more discerning bars all over the state, and peace almost reined agin.

    Yippy yi yo ki aye.

    Hi Jo,

    in the context of your later edit, he was saying;

    "Oh, you have a guy, so there's no chance of a little casual...erm...cuddle on the side then.

    Believe it or not, the best way to "teach her a lesson", is to move on, find a great girl and have the relationship you deserve. From what it sounds like, she will screw her relationship up again, and she isn't worth the time it took to write all this, right. But honestly, what gets a girl the maddest, is when she is no longer in your thoughts and can't play you anymore. Good luck
