* The StickyBomb was a real ally weapon in WW2. It resembled a German stick grenade but with the end coated in glue, to be tossed on the weak-parts on enemy tanks. Pulling the pin would pop the end off, revealing the sticky end and arming the device, and having one where the glue leaked onto the handle was a ''very'' real possibility.

African-Americans during the slavery period mixed this story with the [[RascallyRabbit Br'er Rabbit]] cycle, putting the title Rabbit in the starring role and making the tar baby a creation of Br'er Fox. Sadly, those tales are almost forgotten in modern America, especially because Disney's ''Disney/SongOfTheSouth'' has been put into permanent storage due to ValuesDissonance and meddling from political correctness authorities. It's gotten to the point that even modern people who've heard of the tar baby story think it's some sort of [[GetTheeToANunnery archaic racist remark]], when it's nothing of the sort.

** There is a hazard in nature called a predator trap, where animals can get hopelessly stuck in thick mud or sticky tar (or in some cases, {{quicksand|Sucks}}). Their corpses attract the attention of predators, whom also get mired while feasting on them.

** On the flip side, Spidey will occasionally use this on his foes, laying down sticky webbing in a spot to keep them where they are. He's more likely to do this if he has time to set up, and then generally on more street-level foes (as anyone with SuperStrength will be able to just pull away).
