A Mafia Godfather finds out that his bookkeeper has stolen ten million bucks from him.
The bookkeeper is deaf. It was the reason he got the job in the first
place, since it was assumed that a deaf bookkeeper would not be able to hear anything that he’d ever have to testify about in court.
When the Godfather goes to shakedown the bookkeeper about his missing $10 million bucks, he brings along his attorney, who knows sign language.
The Godfather asks the bookkeeper: ”Where is the $10 million bucks you embezzled from me?”
The attorney, using sign language, asks the bookkeeper where the $10 million bucks is hidden.
The bookkeeper signs back: ”I don’t know what you are talking about.”
The attorney tells the Godfather: ”He says he doesn’t know what you’re talking about.”
That’s when the Godfather pulls out a 9 mm pistol, puts it to the
bookkeeper’s temple, cocks it, and says: ”Ask him again!”
The attorney signs to the underling: ”He’ll kill you for sure if you
don’t tell him!”
The bookkeeper signs back: ”Ok! You win! The money is in a brown
briefcase, buried behind the shed in my cousin Enzo’s backyard in
The Godfather asks the attorney: ”Well, what’d he say?”
The attorney replies: ”He says you don’t have the guts to pull the trigger.”

Three Irishmen are sitting in the pub window seat watching the front door of the brothel over the road. The local Methodist pastor appears, and quickly goes inside.
”Would you look at that!” says the first Irishman. ”Didn’t I always say what a bunch of hypocrites they are?”
No sooner are the words out of his mouth than a Rabbi appears at the door, knocks, and goes inside.
”Another one trying to fool everyone with pious preaching and stupid hats!”
They continue drinking their stout and roundly condemning the vicar and the rabbi when they see their own Catholic priest knock on the door.
”Ah, now dat’s sad,” says the third Irishman. ”One of the girls must have died.”
