Screen insects

I don't know how many of you remember xroach: an X-windows game that would generate a lot of images of roaches which hid behind your terminal windows or browser or what have you. When you iconized a window the roaches revealed would scurry around the screen looking for a new place to hide. You could click on them to squish them. Minutes of fun--but much more amusing if you could distract some unsuspecting soul and invoke it on their machine.

The old flat-screen I'm using at work has several layers, and an ant got in between them somehow. All morning it wandered to and fro, looking at all the backwards text. (Not that unix commands are that much odder forward...)
