Neat Nick

enable images

 I do not have a nephew named Nicolas (or any close relatives by that name but I believe there is a Nick if I go up my family tree to my grandfather and over to one of his siblings and down a level or two). I don't know if he's neat. Now I want to know why the phrase 'neat Nick' is a thing... Ah, that should be neatnik. Apparently there's also a medical tool called a NeatNick which is used for blood draws (I appreciate the punny name) and a Preserves company by the same name headed by a lady named Nicole. But I can't seem to find the origin of 'neatnik' so maybe I'll leave that research up to my viewers. 

A: Why is your nephew Nicolas so messy?
B: He's just not a neat Nick.
