The
Deaf Italian Bookkeeper

A
Mafia Godfather finds out that
his bookkeeper, Guido, has
cheated him out of
$10,000,000.00

His
bookkeeper is deaf. That was
the reason he got the job in
the first place.

It was
assumed that Guido would hear
nothing so he would not have
to testify in court.

When
the Godfather goes to confront
Guido about his missing $10
million, he takes along his
lawyer who knows sign
language.

The
Godfather tells the lawyer,
"Ask him where the money is!

The
lawyer, using sign language,
asks Guido, Where's the money?

Guido
signs back, "I don't know what
you are talking about." The
lawyer tells the Godfather,
"He says he doesn't know what
you are talking about" The
Godfather pulls out a pistol,
puts it to Guido's head and
says, "Ask him again or I'll
kill him!"

The
lawyer signs to Guido, "He'll
kill you if you don't tell
him."
Guido trembles and
signs back, "OK! You win!
The money is in a brown
briefcase, buried behind the
shed at my cousin Bruno's
house.

The
Godfather asks the lawyer,
"What did he say?" The lawyer
replies, "He says you don't
have the balls to pull the
trigger."

Don't
you just love lawyers?
