6 degrees of Steve Jobs: Round 5 – Ralph Wiggum

Steve Jobs enjoys a unique position among technology leaders in that he has strong ties to the entertainment industry as well. Because of these ties, we feel it may be possible to link Steve Jobs to almost every famous person in history (except, oddly enough, Kevin Bacon) through a series of past events. To test this theory (and pass the time on slow news days), we have created the 6 Degrees of Steve game.

Let’s play!

Alright, Round 5 is our first attempt to link Steve Jobs to a fictional character – none other that The Simpson’sRalph ‘ I Bent my Wookie‘ Wiggum“.

Remember, you have to do it in 6 steps or less. Points awarded for creativity and obscurity.

Good luck!

    1: This round was posted the day after Danny Vinik caught the ball that may have led the Sox to win another game.

    2: Vinik is hailed by some as the “anti-Bartman”, referring to a similar infamous incident where the ball was caught by Steve Bartman.

    3: Bart Simpon’s alter-ego on the Simpsons is named Bartman.

    4: Bart Simpson goes to school with Ralph Wiggum.

    1. Steve and Woz priced their first computer at $666.66, a version of Satan’s number.
    2. Satan is in charge of the tobacco industry, or so I’ve heard.
    3. Homer created Tomacco, a tomato/tobacco hybrid, unknowingly doing Satan’s bidding.
    4. Tomacco “tastes like [Ralph’s] grandma.”
    5. Ralph’s grandma begat Ralph’s dad.
    6. Ralph sprang from the Chief’s loins to also do Satan’s bidding in Springfield, as we know that Ralph’s mouth has been known to “taste like burning.”

    1. Steve Jobs had some issues with the (remaining) Beatles about the Apple logo.
    2. The right of the Beatles music is partly owned by Michael Jackson.
    3. Michael Jackson was co-composer of the Simpsons-song ‘Do The Bartman’ (also, Bart Simpson was in his video Black Or White).
    4. Bart Simpson goes to school with Ralph Wiggum.

    3. Bill Gates and Steve Jobs – well, we all know how those 2 are related

    2. Bill Gates appeared on The Daily Show with Stephen Colbert on Jan 29/07
