Looking on the bright side, I guess you won't have to agonize over what wallpaper to choose.

Just wait and don't click any of those. Sooner or later you'll get the "unused Icons" message and Windows will clean that up for you Until then enjoy your simply unique wallpaper

I saved that as a wallpaper for pranks ^_^

I think the best course of immediate remedy would be to hand delete everything in one spot, "straight down" through the desktop until you get a clear spot of wallpaper, and mass select everything you can, then delete.
Wash, rinse, repeat as necessary.

I hate to say it, but it looks like an attack of the 4Chan.

Whoa, this will be a tough one to clean... perhaps a "safe mode" boot will help?
