Yep. Most such widgets have wide bases, some of which are suction cups, so you can apply them to a floor (or to your forehead, if you’re feeling very, very silly).
I can tell you, there are some seriously wierd people out there, and even wierder toys built to their tastes.. One of those little tidbits of information I have lodged in my brain is a zoophile toys website, where one can buy anatomically-correct toys molded from various animals. Yes, you too can be the proud owner of a translucent yellow-green, three foot long horse wang.
I think if I’m ever rich, I’ll get one in hard plastic, just to turn it into a lamp. Great conversation piece.
