Here's a thing

Did you know that Bart Simpson's (oops, subsequent edit in light of Ray's comment below: Homer Simpson's) mother Mona Simpson was named after the novelist (and English professor at UCLA) Mona Simpson, to whom one of the writers of The Simpsons was married;

that the real Mona Simpson's brother is Steve Jobs, co-founder of Apple;

and that the writer in question (Mona's husband) is named Richard Appel? I'm willing to bet you didn't know that.

While you're wondering whether there is a point to this post, you can wish Steve Jobs Happy Birthday - he was born on this day in 1955.
