The boss has gone crazy – everyone knows Dave

Dave bragged to his boss one day: “I’ll tell you, I know everybody who needs to be known.

You name one, any one, I know him.”

His boss got tired of his bragging and decided to call his bluff.

“Okay, Dave, how about Elon Musk?”

“Oh, Elon and I go way back and I can prove it.”

So Dave and his boss fly to Florida and knock on Elon Musk’s door and Elon yells, “Dave! What’s up? Good to see you! Come on in and grab a beer!”

Dave’s boss is impressed, but still skeptical. After leaving Musk’s house, he tells Dave that he thinks it was just a chance to meet Elon.

Dave says, “No, no, name someone else.”

“Bill Gates,” his boss immediately replies.

“Yes,” says Dave, “Bill and I are old friends. Let’s fly to California,” and off they go.

At the Microsoft offices, Bill Gates sees Dave and calls him and his boss over and says, “Dave, what a surprise, I was just on my way to a meeting, but come on in with your friend, let’s have a beer and catch up.

The boss is now very shaken, but still not completely convinced. After leaving the Microsoft offices, he expresses his doubts to Dave, who again asks him to name someone else.

“Pope Francis,” his boss replies.

“Of course!” says Dave. “I’ve known the Pope for years.” So they fly to Rome.

As Dave and his boss mingle with the crowd in St. Peter’s Square at the Vatican, Dave says, “This is never going to work. I can’t get the pope’s attention with all these people. I’ll tell you what, I know all the guards, so I’m going to go upstairs and get on the balcony with the Pope. He disappears into the crowd towards the Vatican.

Half an hour later, Dave appears on the balcony with the Pope, but when Dave returns, he sees that his boss has had a heart attack and is surrounded by paramedics.

Dave goes up to his boss and asks him, “What happened?

His boss looks up and says, “It was the last straw. You and the Pope went out on the balcony and the guy next to me said, ‘Who’s that on the balcony with Dave?
