So here’s Average Rob, self-proclaimed “Mediocre dude from Belgium” who has been posting photos with his friends on Instagram – just like everybody else. And just because his friends are celebrities and other famous people, it’s being called photoshop. The truth is, everybody knows Rob, and here’s an incident that proves it.
Rob 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, Rob, how about Brad Pitt?”
“No dramas boss, Brad and I are old friends, and I can prove it.” So Rob and his boss fly out to Hollywood and knock on Brad Pitt’s door, and Brad Pitt shouts,
“Rob! What’s happening? Great to see you! Come on in for a beer!”
Although impressed, Rob’s boss is still skeptical. After they leave Brad’s house, he tells Rob that he thinks him knowing Brad was just lucky.
“No, no, just name anyone else,” Rob says.
“President Trump,” his boss quickly retorts.
“Yup,” Rob says, “Old buddies, let’s fly out to Washington,” and off they go.
At the White House, Trump spots Rob on the tour and motions him and his boss over, saying, “Rob, 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 beer 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 Rob, who again implores him to name anyone else.
“Pope Francis,” his boss replies.
“Sure!” says Rob. “I’ve known the Pope for years.” So off they fly to Rome.
Rob and his boss are assembled with the masses at the Vatican’s St. Peter’s Square when Rob 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.” He disappears into the crowd headed towards the Vatican.
Sure enough, fifteen minutes later Rob emerges with the Pope on the balcony, but by the time Rob returns, he finds that his boss has had a heart attack and is surrounded by paramedics.
Making his way to his boss, Rob asks him, “What happened?”
His boss looks up and says, “It was the final straw… you and the Pope came out on to the balcony and the man next to me said, ‘Who is that on the balcony with Rob?’
