Origin:

There is a special manner of speech in which we use to contradictory terms together, but the last one is the one that weighs more. This manner of speech is called oxymoron. Some examples are: original copy, a fine mess, a little big, agree to disagree, awfully pretty, intelligently stupid, etc. Accidentally on purpose is one of these expressions.

•I know that John doesn´t like me because his girlfriend used to be mine sometime ago. Today, while we were in the school cafeteria, he spilled a hot cup of coffee on my back. He argued that it had been an accident but I know in my heart, it happened accidentally on purpose.
