You've got to love a self-made billionaire named Bartmann.
From FoxBusiness:

Judging from the current state of the economy, with fears of a recession reigning supreme, now may not seem like the ideal time to start a new business.

But for Bill Bartmann, a serial entrepreneur who has had his fair share of scandal, nothing could be further from the truth.

From Wikipedia:

"Do the Bartman" is a song from The Simpsons' 1990 album The Simpsons Sing the Blues. The song leads off the album as the first track and the first single released from it.
Shonen Knife released a Japanese language cover of the song as a b-side on their 1992 CD single "Do the Knife".

Now that's obscure.
