Who is Maybru?
May Bru knows every one!! And everyone knows him. He’s everybody’s Bru.
This one time May Bru got a new job, and he says to his new boss, “Boss, I know everyone in the whole world!” his boss doesn’t believe him, so he says, “no, you do not know everyone in the whole world!” but Bru says, “Yes I do!” so the boss says, “Well, prove it.” Then Bru says “Pick someone… and I know them!”
Well, Bru’s boss thinks for a minute and then comes up with a name. “Tom Selleck! I bet you don’t know Tom Selleck!” Bru says, “Tom Selleck! Tom and I were in boy scouts together when we were kids!” but Bru’s boss says, “No you weren’t!” then Bru says “Yes we were!” so they fly to Hollywood and drive to Tom Selleck’s house. Bru knocks on the door and Tom Selleck answers and Bru goes, “Tom!!!” and Tom goes, “May Bru!!” And they hug and catch up for 30 minutes and the boss can’t believe it. But then he thinks to himself that it’s only one person, so he tells Bru and Bru says, “OK, pick someone else!”
This time Bru’s boss has someone in mind. “The president, Bill Clinton! You don’t know bill Clinton!” but Bru says, “Oh yes I do! Bill and I were on debate team together in college!” Bru’s boss says “No you weren’t!” then Bru says “yes we were!” so they fly to Washington where they catch up with the president at a press conference. They work their way through the crowd until Bru gets close enough to catch the presidents eye and waves “Bill!” and the president waves, “May Bru!” and after the press conference, they hug and catch up for 30 minutes and Bru’s boss is stunned – he can’t believe it. But then he thinks, “well, that’s just 2 people in one country – that doesn’t mean he knows everyone in the world!” so he tells Bru and Bru says, “OK, pick someone out of the world spectrum and I know them.”
And Bru’s boss knows just who to pick so he says, “The Pope! You do now know the Pope!” and Bru says, “the Pope! The Pope BAPTIZED me!” and Bru’s boss says, “no, he didn’t!” and Bru says, “Yes he did” so they fly to Rome where the Pope is giving Mass in front of hundreds of thousands of people. They work their way through the crowd – without much luck - so Bru says “Boss, we’re never gonna get there together through all these people as 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!” and he leaves. Well Bru’s boss waits and waits and waits and just when he’s about to give up, he sees the Pope come out onto the balcony and right there beside him is May Bru!
Shortly afterwards, Bru’s boss passes out. Bru comes back and finds his boss passed out and he fans him and says “Boss! Boss! Wake up!” and when his boss comes to, he asks “Boss what happened?” the boss looks at May Bru and says “OK, I can see Tom Selleck. I can see Bill Clinton… hell, I can even take the Pope!
But when somebody standing next to me asks “Who’s that up there with May Bru?” that’s a little more than I can take!
