    Bob Knows Everybody

    Bob and his friend are sitting on front porch admiring the
    sunset. Bob has a proud smile on his face when he says, "You
    know, I don't think there's anyone on this planet I don't know."

    His friend looks at him, "What? You're kidding!"

    Bob says, "No. I think I know just about everybody."

    Bob's friend says, "I bet you don't know the governor."

    "George? Yeah, I know ol' George, as a matter of fact, I'm having
    dinner with him Tuesday. Why don't you come along?"

    They show up at the governor's mansion Tuesday, Governor Bush
    opens up the door himself. "Hey, Bob! How are ya doin'? Come on
    in!"

    Bob's friend is quite impressed, but still not convinced Bob
    knows everybody. A few days later he tells Bob. "I bet you don't
    know Bruce Springsteen."

    "Bruce? Sure I know the Boss! We used to hang out together in
    Jersey!"

    "Bob, I don't believe you. I think you're lying to me."

    "No, really," Bob responds, "In fact, he's putting on a show
    tomorrow night. Lets go."

    Bob and his friend make their way up to front row. Bruce
    Springsteen looks down and says, "I'd like to dedicate this next
    song to my good friend Bob here."

    The friend is getting totally freaked by now. He is determined to
    find someone Bob doesn't know. A couple of weeks later, Bob is
    once again sitting on the porch with that proud smile on his
    face, when his friend pulls up in the driveway, jumps out of the
    car and says, "Aha! You don't know the Pope!"

    "The Pope? Sure I know ol' John Paul!"

    "You're lyin', Bob! I don't believe you!"

    "I'll prove it to you," Bob says.

    So they fly over to the Vatican. Bob's friend stands near the
    front of the crowd waiting for the Pope to come out on the
    balcony. Soon the Pope appears before the thousands of people in
    the crowd. Sure enough, right behind him comes Bob. Standing next
    to the Pope and waving at the crowds. After a bit Bob looks down
    and sees his friend passed out on the ground. He runs down to the
    street to his friend and says, "Hey, you okay?"

    "Yeah, I'm okay. I was standing here in shock when all of a
    sudden a guy leans towards me and says, 'Hey, who's that standing
    next to Bob?'"
