Table legs

A finishing touch to a slimy office.

You've no doubt seen those fake limbs that appear to hang out of the rear ends of cars. Well, in this case, it's a pair of high heeled shoes and fishnet-stocking clad calves protruding from under the desk, giving the appearance of someone kneeling down.

       I'm totally curious why this idea is in *sticky-notes*...

       I'll assume the unseen part of this device must be stuck to the table, so that when an ordinary person puts own legs under the table, the gadget isn't dislodged.

       Well, if they weren't sticky before…

       Well, several of these tables of course exist. Designers have been producing them for a long time.   

       When a language allows for a double meaning of a word (such as "legs") one of the first thing designers do, is to design an object around that double meaning.   

       Table "legs" wich resemble real legs have therefor been around for a long time. [link]

       What I want to know is, which came first, the table or the table leg?

       The table leg, obviously, else the table wouldn't have a leg to stand on.
