The Godfather, accompanied by his lawyer, walks into a room to meet with his accountant.
The Godfather asks the accountant, "where's the three million bucks you embezzled from me?"
The accountant doesn't answer.
The Godfather asks again, "where's the three million bucks you embezzled from me?"
The lawyer interrupts, "Sir, the man is deaf/mute and cannot understand you, but I can interpret for you."
The Godfather says, "well, ask him where the money is."
The lawyer, using sign language, asks the accountant where the three million dollars is.
The accountant signs back, "I don't know what you're talking about."
The lawyer interprets to the Godfather, " He doesn't know what you're talking about "
The Godfather pulls out a pistol, puts it to the head of the accountant, cocks the hammer and says, "Ask him again where the money is!"
The attorney signs to the accountant, "He wants to know where it is!"
The accountant signs back, "Okay! Okay! The money's hidden in a suitcase behind the shed in my backyard!"
The Godfather says, "Well, what did he say?"
The lawyer smiles and interprets to the Godfather, "He says that you don't have the guts to pull that trigger."
