HA, the Norton Icon proves pretty ineffectual. Surprise surprise.

Like I didn't see the ending coming. Pretty cool, though.

This is cute. It reminds me of an app I had on Mac OS 9, which allowed you to trash your desktop in various ways, including flame thrower and rocket and... chainsaw? That kind of thing.

You know Firefox would have pwned them all.

But nothing is more powerful than xkcd-guy.

I've had a similiar idea for a desktop game, but this execution was very very good!

I wanted them all to be devoured by the recycle bin.

Surely this is a duplicate? I first saw this quite literally years ago. Didn't the guy make a handful of sequels too?

I really wish people wouldn't do that. Look, if it's a duplicate, find it and post it in-line. I looked high and low, and did not find it.

When the desktop first came up (grassy hillside), I assumed a battalion of icons would come charging over the crest of the hill, like in Braveheart or Phantom Menace.
Still fun, tho!
