Bubba Knows Everyone!
>>>
>>> Bubba was bragging to his boss one day, "You know, I know everyone that
>>> there is to know. Just name someone, anyone, and I know them."
>>>
>>> Tired of his boasting, his boss called his bluff, "OK, Bubba how about
>>> Tom
>>> Cruise?"
>>>
>>> "Sure, yes, Tom and I are old friends, and I can prove it."
>>>
>>> So Bubba and his boss fly out to Hollywood and knock on Tom Cruise's
>>> door,
>>> and sure enough, Tom Cruise, shouts, "Bubba! Great to see you! You and
>>> your friend come right in and join me for lunch!"
>>>
>>> Although impressed, Bubba's boss is still skeptical. After they leave
>>> Cruise's house, he tells Bubba that he thinks Bubba's knowing Cruise was
>>> just lucky.
>>>
>>> "No, no, just name anyone else," Bubba says.
>>>
>>> "President Clinton, "his boss quickly retorts.
>>>
>>> "Yes," Bubba says, "I know him, let's fly out to Washington." And off
>>> they
>>> go.
>>>
>>> At the White House, Clinton spots Bubba on the tour and motions him and
>>> his boss over, saying, "Bubba, what a surprise, I was just on my way to
>>> a
>>> meeting, but you and your friend come on in and let's have a cup of
>>> coffee
>>> first and catch up."
>>>
>>> Well, the boss is very shaken by now, but still not totally convinced.
>>> After they leave the White House grounds, he expresses his doubts to
>>> Bubba, who again implores him to name anyone else.
>>>
>>> "The Pope," his boss replies.
>>>
>>> "Sure!" says Bubba. "My folks are from Poland, and I've known the Pope a
>>> long time." So off they fly to Rome.
>>>
>>> Bubba and his boss are assembled with the masses in Vatican Square when
>>> Bubba says, "This will never work. I can't catch the Pope's eye among
>>> all
>>> these people. Tell you what, I know all the guards so let me just go
>>> upstairs and I'll come out on the balcony with the Pope." And he
>>> disappears into the crowd headed toward the Vatican.
>>>
>>> Sure enough, half an hour later Bubba emerges with the Pope on the
>>> balcony. But by the time Bubba returns, he finds that his boss has had a
>>> heart attack and is surrounded by paramedics. Working his way to his
>>> boss'
>>> side, Bubba asks him, "What happened?"
>>>
>>> His boss looks up and says, "I was doing fine until you and the Pope
>>> came
>>> out on the balcony and the man next to me said, 'Who's that on the
>>> balcony
>>> with Bubba?'"
