The difference with HandInTheHole is that here, the victim does it by their own will since they know what's inside and want to get it. For example, when the BrattyHalfPint wants a cookie from the cookie jar. HandInTheHole is when the victim is [[WhatAnIdiot being an idiot]] and putting their hand inside with no idea what's in there.

Sometimes, people want to have a nice snack, it is in a jar of some kind. When they try to grab for whatever is inside of the jar, they will get their hand stuck because of the way that they're gripping it.

A lot of times, people want to get a snack, though sometimes it is in a jar of some kind. When they try to grab for whatever is in the jar, they will get their hand stuck because of the way that they have a grip on the thing in the jar.

This is a {{Comedy}} trope in which when you grab the contents of a jar, your hand winds up getting stuck, because of the way you have a grip on it.
