Odd Language #232: Still Another Double Word

From an E-mail list post of mine: “Undated posts (blog or forum) are also something one could get rich on on the $1 plan.”

The issue: The first “on” is part of the phrase “get rich on”. This is not just getting rich, but getting rich because of (which is the meaning here for the second “on”) the $1 plan.
