The Deaf Italian Bookkeeper

A Chicago Mafia Godfather finds out that his deaf bookkeeper, Guido, has cheated him out of $10,000,000.00. That was the reason he got the job in the first place. It was assumed that Guido would hear nothing and would therefore never have to testify in court.

When the Godfather goes to confront Guido about the 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 on Taylor Street.”

The  Godfather asks the lawyer, “What did he say?”

The  lawyer replies, “He says you don’t have the guts to pull the  trigger!”
