Found this riddle in a Christmas cracker and after a few drinks it took me far too long to complete than it should have:

What goes on and on and has 'I' in the middle?


The answer to this riddle is

Onion (ON I ON)


The last time I heard this joke, the answer was

an onion
Explanation: "on and on with i in the middle" = ON + I + ON = ONION

  • $\begingroup$ @Rubio the downvote came just before I corrected the formatting so was probably for that. Still +1, shame you just missed out $\endgroup$ – Beastly Gerbil Dec 9 '16 at 19:43
