Joke - Bubba...


Bubba was bragging to his boss one day, "You know, I know everyone 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 Obama," his boss quickly retorts.

"Yes," Bubba says, "I know him. Let's fly out to Washington."

And off they go. At the White House, Obama 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!" boasts Bubba. "My folks are from Italy, and I've known the
Pope a long time."

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."

Bubba disappears into the crowd headed toward the Vatican. Sure enough,
half an hour later Bubba emerges with the Pope on the balcony.

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?'"

  1. Val, I had a different version of this where the set up was the friend was too far away to make out what was happening as the crowd was shouting an applauding and two men appeared on the balcony. So the friend turns to someone and asks "Who are those two people?" And the man replies "I don't know the one in the beanie, but the other one is Bubba."
