In the so weird it's wonderful category is artist Ryan McElhiney's old toy lamp. Super easy to reproduce, all we'd have to do is grab a cord/socket and start piling up toys, hot-gluing as we go. Then, when we're done, shoot the whole thing with shiny lacquer. Of course, we wouldn't be limited to toys. Just think of all the other flotsam and jetsam we have lying about that could work.
