The Interpreter

A Mafia Godfather, accompanied by his lawyer, walks into a room to meet with his accountant.

The Godfather asks the accountant, "Where is the 3 million bucks you embezzled from me? " The accountant does not answer.

The Godfather asks again, "Where is the 3 million bucks you embezzled from me?"

The lawyer interrupts, "Sir, the man is a deaf mute and cannot understand you, but I can interpret for you."

The Godfather says, "Well...ask him where the damn money is".

The lawyer, using sign language, asks the accountant where the 3 million dollars is.

The accountant signs back, "I don't know what you are talking about."

The lawyer interprets to the Godfather, "He doesn't know what you are talking about."

The Godfather pulls out a 9 millimeter pistol, puts it to the temple of the accountant, cocks the trigger and says, "Ask him again where the damn money is!"

The lawyer signs to the accountant, "He wants to know where it is!"

The accountant signs back, "OK! OK! OK!, the money is hidden in a suitcase behind the shed in my backyard!"

The Godfather says, "Well....what did he say?"

The lawyer interprets to the Godfather, "He says that you don't have the guts to pull the trigger."
