A big time Gangster finds out that his personal accountant, Robert, has cheated him out of 5 million bucks. His accountant is deaf. That was the reason he got the job in the first place. It was assumed that Robert would hear nothing that he might have to testify about in court.
When the Gangster goes to confront Robert about his missing $5 million, he takes along his lawyer who knows sign language.
The Gangster tells the lawyer, “Ask him where the 5 million bucks are, that he stole from me.”
The lawyer, using sign language, asks Robert where the money is. Robert signs back, “I don’t know what you are talking about.”
The lawyer tells the Gangster , “He says he doesn’t know what you are talking about.”
The Gangster pulls out a pistol, puts it to Robert’s temple and says, “Ask him again!”
The lawyer signs to Robert , “He’ll kill you if you don’t tell him.”
Robert signs back, “OK. You win! The money is in a black bag, hidden in the cupboard at my nephew’s house.!”
The Gangster asks the lawyer, “What did he say?”
The lawyer replies, “He says you don’t have the guts to pull the trigger.”
