They are little "post it" notes, in your desktop settings under "mouse 
actions" your middle mouse button is set to "paste", so when you middle click 
on the desktop it pastes the current clip board contents into a "post it" note

depending on whats in your clip board at the time it should ask if you want to 
add a note or a webslice or an image.

anyway, just disable the paste option from your middle click button in desktop 
settings, then just delete the notes as any other plasmoid widget
