A Deaf Bookkeeper

A Mafia Godfather finds out that his bookkeeper, Enzo, has cheated him out of 10 million dollars. His bookkeeper is deaf. That was the reason he was hired in the first place. It was assumed that Enzo would hear nothing that he might have to testify about in court.

When the Godfather goes to confront Enzo about his missing $10 million, he takes along his lawyer who knows sign language. The Godfather says to the lawyer, "Ask him where the 10 million dollars are that he embezzled from me."

The lawyer, using sign language, asked Enzo where the money was hidden.

Enzo signed 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 pulled out a pistol, put it to Enzo's temple and said, "Ask him again!"

The lawyer signed to Enzo, "He'll kill you if you don't tell him."

Enzo signed back, "Okay, you win! The money is in a brown briefcase, buried behind the shed in my cousin Bruno's backyard in Woodbridge!"

The Godfather asked the lawyer, "What did he say?"

The lawyer replied, "He said you don't have the courage to pull the trigger."
