    Someone over at Google was bored. Or awesome. Or bored and awesome, as likely the case may be.

    The mega search engine launched a handle new tool that allows you to play Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon without having to troll through endless IMDb pages. For those that don't know the game, it's basically the idea that Mr. Bacon can be connected to any other celebrity with six or fewer links.

    Now all you need to do is Google a celebrity's name along with the phrase "Bacon number" and—boom!—you've got your answer. So how does the E! family stack up in terms of Baconology:

    Check out a first look at Kevin Bacon's latest TV project, The Following!

    First up? E! star Kim Kardashian, and her beau Kanye West, both of whom clocked in at two connections.

    Kim appeared alongside Denise Richards in Deep in the Valley and Denise appeared in Wild Things with Kevin. If your memory of the latter flick is solely of a bikini clad Denise smoochin' on another chick and not Mr. Bacon's performance, we'll forgive you.

    Kanye appeared alongside Mos Def in Dave Chappelle's Block Party, one year after he starred in The Woodsman with (all together now!) Kevin Bacon. That's two—a number that many celebs seem to nab.

    Check out the stylish sketch of the oh-so-fashionable Kim K. and Kanye!

    Funny ladies Chelsea Handler and Joan Rivers clock twos as well, with Chelsea sharing Chris Pine (in This Means War for her and Beyond All Boundaries for him) and Joan John Candy (Spaceballs for her, Planes, Trains and Automobiles for him).

    The closest connection? Well that's reserved for our new reality show newlywed, Kevin Jonas. The JoBro boasts the ever prestigious one degree of separation: Both lent their voices to the WW2-centric Beyond All Boundaries.

    Now head over to Google and test some of your favorite Hollywood heavyweights. And if anyone is able to find someone that just barely makes that sixth degree of separation, tell us who.
