Time to get your thinking caps on: here's this week's Connect The World Six Degrees game.

[cnn-photo-caption image= http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2010/images/02/16/khan.patty.blog.gi.jpg caption ="Imran Khan to Patti Smith"]

Here’s how to play: We choose two people in the news this week and ask you to connect them in six short steps.

We've chosen two of this week's Connectors of the Day – both with political leanings.

First up, the "Godmother of Punk"– singer-songwriter Patti Smith.

We want you to connect her to Imran Khan– retired top cricketer turned Pakistani politician. Remember, you need to come up with five people between those two... for a total of six links.

Submit your unique answers below and we’ll pick the most imaginative answer on Friday.

    Imran Khan could not do Justice to his own Daughter by accepting her as her Love Child. If a person cannot do justice with her own blood what credibility that person has to do justice with people of his country. Her daughter will haunt her for the rest of his life. He can run and but cannot hide from reality till he faces his daemons.
