A Mafia Godfather and his bookkeeper

A Mafia Godfather finds out that his bookkeeper, Sam, has cheated him out of $10,000,000. His bookkeeper is deaf. That was the reason he got the job in the first place. It was assumed that Sam would hear nothing so he would never have to testify in court. When the Godfather goes to confront Sam 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 Sam, “Where’s the money?”

Sam signs back, “I don’t know what you are talking about.”

The lawyer tells the Godfather, “He says he doesn’t know what you’re talking about.”

The Godfather pulls out a pistol, puts it to Sam’s head and says, “Ask him again or I’ll kill him!”

The lawyer signs to Sam, “He’ll kill you if you don’t tell him.”

Sam trembles and signs, “OK! You win! The money is in a brown briefcase, buried behind the shed at my cousin Jake’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!”
