A Mafia Godfather finds out that his bookkeeper has
screwed him for ten million bucks. This bookkeeper is
deaf. It was considered an occupational benefit, and
why he got the job in the first place, since it was
assumed that a deaf bookkeeper would not be able to
hear anything he'd ever have to testify about in
When the Godfather goes to shakedown the bookkeeper
about his missing $10 million bucks, he brings along
his attorney, who knows sign language.
The Godfather asks the bookkeeper: "Where is the 10
million bucks you embezzled from me?"
The attorney, using sign language, asks the bookkeeper
where the 10 million dollar is hidden.
The bookkeeper signs back: "I don't know what you are
The attorney tells the Godfather: "He says he doesn't

says: "Ask him again!"
The attorney signs to the underling: "He'll kill you

The bookkeeper signs back: "OK! You win! The money is
in a brown briefcase, buried behind the shed in my
cousin Enzo's backyard in Queens!"
The Godfather asks the attorney: "Well, what'd he
The attorney replies: "He says you don't have the
balls to pull the trigger.
