    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?'"
