A tack on the chair prank postcard
A victim is "stuck again" by the old tack 
on the chair prank. (Click to enlarge.)


I wonder if "stuck again" used to have another meaning, besides the obvious one of being "stuck again" by sitting on a tack. Maybe it’s related to this bad joke I found in a paper from 1905, humorously explaining the origin of slang terms:

"Stuck again," cried the fly, alighting on the sticky paper.

– I found the vintage postcard at Art Unique Gambar>>
– The joke is from Our Paper, Volume 21 by Massachusetts Reformatory (Concord, Mass.)>>
