My question: can you solve my riddle?

And here it is.

Someone or something slipped out from under the inside of a hug.
What is it?

I actually seriously doubt anyone can solve this. But good luck anyways. In the second round I will give you the answer.

Do be honest I don't know the answer to this. A few years back my teacher would start each morning with writing a riddle on the board. But for some odd reason this was one of the riddles she never answered. Or maybe I just missed it.

I have been trying for years now to find the answer and I was puzzling over it again recently when I thought "hey! Why don't I ask on debate.org?" And finally an answer that makes sense! Jeez I'm a moron! That is the most obvious answer ever.

So I ask the voters to please vote in favour of pro. I believe he/she has solved it.

I'd appreciate no snippy comments. But if some idiot decides to slander me or my stupidity I'll give you a heads up: I'm going to ignore you.

Thanks.

So was I right or not?

The answer is "a condom". Stop buying Magnums, since they're obviously too big.

What if I contested your answer to the riddle with a brilliant counter explanation?

The resolution is highly vunerable to semantics.

I hate riddles like these, where it's less about getting the other person to think critically, and more about just trying to stump the other person with completely unguessable answers.

Reasons for voting decision: Would have been better done in the forums than as a debate. A "riddle" with no correct answer has to be scored for Con (for secondguy, actually, who in this case is inexplicably called "Pro"). If the answer was supposed to be, "A preposition," then the riddle my be a misremembering of a modification of the poem found here: http://www.anvari.org/fortune/Miscellaneous_Collections/388918_i-lately-lost-a-preposition-it-hid-i-thought-beneath-my-chair-and-angrily-i-cried-perdition.html
