Bragging at its heights

We have come across many versions of this joke on the internet.. here is another version :

Bubba was bragging to his boss one day, "You know, I know everyone there is toknow. Just name someone, anyone, and I know them. " Tired of his boasting, his boss called his bluff, “OK, Bubba how about TomCruise? “
“Sure, yes, Tom and I are old friends, and I can prove it. ” So Bubba and hisboss fly out to Hollywood and knock on Tom Cruise’s door, and sure enough, TomCruise, shouts, “Bubba! Great to see you! You and your friend come right in andjoin me for lunch! “
Although impressed, Bubba’s boss is still skeptical. After they leave Cruise’shouse, he tells Bubba that he thinks Bubba’s knowing Cruise was just lucky. “No, no, just name anyone else, ” Bubba says. “President Bush, ” his boss quickly retorts.
“Yep, ” Bubba says, “I know him, let’s fly out to Washington. ” And off they go.At the White House, Bush spots Bubba on the tour and motions him and his bossover, saying, “Bubba, what a surprise, I was just on my way to a meeting, butyou and your friend come on in and let’s have a cup of coffee first and catchup. “
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, whoagain implores him to name anyone else.
“The Pope, ” his boss replies. “Sure! ” says Bubba. “I’ve known the Pope a longtime. ” So off they fly to Rome.
Bubba and his boss are assembled with the masses in Vatican Square when Bubbasays, “This will never work. I can’t catch the Pope’s eye among all thesepeople. Tell you what, I know all the guards so let me just go upstairs and I’llcome out on the balcony with the Pope. ” And he disappears into the crowd headedtoward St. Peter’s.
Sure enough, half an hour later Bubba emerges with the Pope on the balcony. Butby the time Bubba returns, he finds that his boss has had a heart attack and issurrounded by paramedics.
Working his way to his boss’s side, Bubba asks him,“What happened? “ His boss looks up and says, “I was doing fine until you and the Pope came out onthe balcony and the Japanese tourist next to me asked, “Who’s that on the balcony with Bubba? “
