Deaf Accountant

The crime boss and his attorney meet with his accountant. “Where’s the $3 million you embezzled from me?” demands the gangster. The accountant is silent. “Where’s my $3 million?” the crime boss shouts.

The lawyer explains: “Sir, the man is deaf. Allow me to translate.”

Using sign language, the attorney asks the accountant about the money; the message relayed back is that the accountant knows nothing about it.


Furious, the crime boss pulls out a revolver and puts it to the accountant’s head, screaming at the lawyer, “Ask him again where my %#*[email protected]#&*# money is!”

“Okay! Okay!” the deaf accountant signs back. “The money’s hidden behind the old toolshed in my backyard.”

“What did he say?” demands the enraged crime boss.

The attorney replies, “He says you don’t have the guts to pull the trigger.”
