Bubba

There was a man named Bubba and he knew everyone in the whole world.

Bubba was not a man to boast, but one day at work, his boss said "Bubba, I reckon you know everyone in this plant"

"Boss, I know everyone in the whole world." Bubba says to his boss

The boss doesn't believe him, so he says, "Well prove it!"

"Pick someone ... anyone ... and I know them!" says Bubba,

Well, Bubba's boss thinks for a minute and then comes up with a name. Tom Selleck

"Tom Selleck!" says Bubba, "Tom and I were boy scouts together when we were kids."

Bubba's boss says, "No you weren't." So they fly to Hollywood and drive up to Tom Selleck's house.

Bubba knocks on the door and Tom Selleck answers it: "Bubba!" and they hug and catch up for half an hour and Bubba's boss can't believe it. But then he thinks, well that could happen, it's just one person, so he tells Bubba

"OK pick somebody else." says Bubba.

This time Bubba's boss has someone in mind! "The president, Bill Clinton, you don't know Bill Clinton."

"Oh yes I do," says Bubba, "Bill and I were on debate team together in college." So they fly to Washington and they catch up with the president at a press conference. They work their way through the crowd until Bubba gets close enough to catch Clinton's eye and waves.

The president waves "Bubba!" and after the press conference they hug and catch up for half an hour and Bubba boss is stunned - he can't believe it. But then he thinks, well that's just two people in one country - that doesn't mean he knows everyone in the whole world! So he tells Bubba.

"OK, pick someone out of the whole world spectrum and I know them." Says Bubba.

"The Pope, you do not know the Pope."

Bubba replies, "the Pope, the Pope baptized me." So off to Rome they fly where the Pope is giving Mass. They work their way through thousands of people toward the front.

Bubba says, "Boss, we're never gonna get there together through all these people so I tell you what - I'll work my way up there and when I do I'll give you a sign that shows you I know the Pope"

Well, Bubba's boss waits and waits and waits and just when he's about to give up he sees the Pope come out on to the balcony and right there beside is Bubba!

Bubba's boss looks at Bubba in disbelief. Just to be sure, he turns to the man next to him and asks, "Who's that up there on the balcony?"

"OK, I can see Bubba ... but I don't know the guy standing next to him."
