"I just walked into the kitchen and said to myself, 'Flying Toasters!' Then I went back to the office and coded it."

Perhaps the most famous Windows screensaver in existance. In it's latest incarnation, toasters with wings fly across your screen, accompanied by toasted objects and baby toasters.

The makers of the Opus 'n Bill screensaver were sued for having their Bloom County mascots go toaster-hunting, and subsequent releases of it had to feature flying toilets instead.

Berkeley Systems : The Flying Toasters

Flying out of the sun
The smell of toast is in the air
When there's a job to be done
The flying toasters will be there.
And it's flap! Flap! Flap!
Now help is on the way.
This vict'ry song they sing:
We pop up to save the day
On mighty toaster wings!

In brightest day of After Dark
When times of trouble are at hand.
The Flying Toasters set a spark
And hope is blazing 'cross the land
And its flap! Flap! Flap!
Salvation from above
This precious gift they bring
Gleaming angels of love
On mighty Toaster Wings!
