It’s time for the Cult of Mac to mobilize. Apple co-founder, Segway enthusiast and all-around snuggly bear Steve Wozniak has won many honors and awards over the years, but this could be the greatest one yet: He’s up to be turned into a wax figure at Madame Tussauds!

If you’ve never heard of Madame Tussauds, it’s a world-famous wax museum with a San Francisco branch that is particularly famous for turning Silicon Valley notables like Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg into realistic wax figures.

Madame Tussauds has been taking nominations for new Silicon Valley elites to be immortalized in wax, and Wozniak has been included among the 10 finalists alongside luminaries like Elon Musk, George Lucas, Marissa Mayer, Larry Page and Sheryl Sandberg.

Obviously, Woz is going to need our help if he wants to be immortalized alongside Steve Jobs as a wax figure. So start voting!

Here’s hoping they give Woz a wax Segway while they’re at it.

    Woz won’t be getting any vote from me. Yeah, he did something great nearly 40 years ago, but he hasn’t done anything since. He is not responsible for anything even close to what we have now from Apple and he didn’t do anything to help Apple when it was on verge of bankruptcy. All he does is get free lunch because people think he is some god that needs to be worshiped. Yeah, Steve Jobs was a dick, but at least he deserves to be celebrated for the things that turned the company around.

      Do you say the same things about guys who won the Medal of Honor? According to your view, sure, they did something great 20 years ago, but they don’t deserve any accolades because they haven’t won another one since.

      In a world in which 99.999% of people never do anything of note in their entire lives, a person who does one thing of extraordinary significance is worthy of lifelong respect – even if it’s just to honor that flash of greatness that he once displayed.

      I don’t tak Woz particularly seriously and I know that he just stumbled into his defining moment with the Apple I and II, but I don’t care. He did what he did, which is more than all but a tiny, tiny fraction of people on this planet.

        It’s not even close to the same thing. Woz thrives on the spotlight and will take any opportunity to exploit this stupid hero worship that people have for him to get interviews, give his opinion, or cut in line for Apple products. Dancing with the Stars? Give me a break.

        How many Medal of Honor recipients do you know that exploit their acts of bravery and heroism (more than Woz ever did) to bathe in the spotlight?

        If you have a visceral dislike of the man, that’s fine. I only object to the “what have you done for me lately?” mentality.

      Completely agree. The guy is an absolut tosser.

    Why do they need more wax? LOLOLOL

    I thought he already was one, just not in a museum.
