That's what I was thinking.  Wasn't that an OS/2 operating system screensaver?

After Dark is a series of computer screensaver software introduced in 1989 by Berkeley Systems for the Apple Macintosh, and for Microsoft Windows in 1991 ... In 1997, Berkeley Systems was acquired by the Sierra On-Line division of CUC International. Joan Blades and Wes Boyd, the founders of Berkeley Systems, went on to create MoveOn.org.

In all fairness, sexytalk in the kitchen is usually not that romantic. And why throw a toaster? Now not only are you definitely not getting sex, but now you have to buy a new toaster. Personally I would have thrown my George Foreman grill because after two months of using the grill, I never used it again.

I have never gotten high in my life, but late at night, when all the lights were off and I'd be proof reading an essay until that screensaver came on, and staring at it for 5 minutes....I....I think I got a taste of what it might feel like.

My flying toasters came on an ancient artifact called a "floppy disc"
 
2014-03-05 11:16:36 PM  
I remember back about 20 years ago, when i used to work at american Airlines, I had reports to do, but did not have a manager cubicle. After a while, some of the managers just didn't want me using their workstations, despite me doing company work. Finally, I wrote a file replacement progam  that changed their passworss in their logon. It was bad enough corporate sent people down to fix it. I was questioned by corporate security, played dumb. Corporate fixed it, 3 weeks later I did it again. Then they upgraded to Win 95,I lost interest in screwing with them. That's my memory of flying toasters.

This kind of thing is what happens when we fail to raise our kids.  The world does it for us when they are out on their own.  Sometimes it isn't pretty.

Ben & Jerry, or actually one of them as an individual after they sold the ice cream company to Unilever in 2000, has been rumored to be a huge contributor to MoveOn, as has George Soros, but I don't have an online reference ready at hand that says so convincingly.  It's probably an urban legend.  Ben & Jerry have several foundations and do a lot of charity work, though.  See the Wikipedia write-ups:

The "Flying Toaster" thing got weird when an upstart software company, Delrina, issued a parody of the the "flying Toaster" screensaver motif with Opus the penguin shooting down the flying toasters,

Berkely systems sued them.

Delrina issued a software update to change the wings to helicopter rotors to get around it.


 s28.postimg.org

"One of Delrina's screensaver products was based on the licensed Bloom County characters Opus the Penguin and Bill the Cat. The initial Opus 'n Bill screensaver, launched in 1993, landed the company in court as its Death Toasters module depicted Opus taking shots at a number of flying toasters, a well-known emblem in Berkeley System's Flying Toasters module from their After Dark screensaver.[46] Berkeley Systems sued for copyright and trademark infringement. The following court case of Berkeley Systems Inc. v. Delrina was fought by Delrina on the basis that a software-based parody should fall under the same First Amendment protection offered to the press."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Delrina


Then Jefferson Airplane got into the act because they originated the idea of flying toasters on one of the album covers in the first place

s13.postimg.org

It really got quite silly, but the events provided awareness of the Delrina screen saver and increased sales.

Not shapeshifting.  Not to get sucked into a philosophical discussion before having coffee and to keep it simple, it's a bit less delusional and more spiritual than that.
