The Deaf Bookkeeper

 Mafia Godfather finds out that his  bookkeeper, Enzo, has cheated him out of 10 million bucks. His  bookkeeper is deaf. That was the reason he got the job 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 tells the lawyer, "Ask him where the 10 million bucks is  that he embezzled from me."

The lawyer,  using sign language, asks Enzo where the money is.  

Enzo 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 Enzo's temple and says, "Ask him  again!"

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

Enzo  signs back, "OK. You win!  The money is in a brown briefcase,  buried behind the shed in my cousin Bruno's backyard in Woodbridge  !"

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

The lawyer replies, " He  says you don't have the balls to pull the trigger."
