[concours] BUBBA

(I just couldn’t resist sending this one … !!!)****
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 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.
