One day, a Mafia Godfather finds out that his bookkeeper of 20 years, Guido , has cheated him out of $10,000,000. Guido is deaf, which is why he got the job in the first place. The Godfather assumed that Guido could not hear anything of a sensitive nature, and he could never testify against him in court.
The Godfather confronted Guido about his missing $10 million, taking along his personal lawyer who happens to know sign language.
The Godfather instructs 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 relays the information to the Godfather, "He says he doesn't know what you are talking about."
The Godfather pulls out a pistol, presses it to Guido's forehead and says, "Tell him to answer the question or I'll kill him!"
The lawyer signs to Guido, "He'll kill you if you don't tell him right now!"
Guido trembles and signs back, "OK! OK! You win! The money is in a brown briefcase, buried 10' away from the northeast corner of the shed behind 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."
