“Carrot on a stick” or “carrot and stick”?

 

There have been several debates around whether the idiom is “carrot on a stick” or “carrot and stick”.  Nobody can say which one is more accurate than the other, since explanations from both are reasonable.  However, “carrot and stick” seems to be more commonly used by many.
