    Muskogee Ok.
    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?'"
