JOKE OF THE WEEK, 9 Jul 2012
The Mafia was looking for a new man to make weekly collections from the private businesses they were “protecting.”
Feeling the heat from the police force, they decide to use a deaf person for this job. If he were to get caught, he wouldn’t be able to communicate to the police what he was doing.
Well, on his first week the deaf collector picks up over $40,000. He gets greedy, decides to keep the money and stashes it in a safe place.
The Mafia soon realizes that the collections are late and send a few hoods after the deaf collector. They find him and ask where the money is. He can’t communicate with them, so they drag the guy to an interpreter.
The Mafia hood says to the interpreter, “Ask him where the money is.”
The interpreter signs, “Where’s the money?”
The deaf man replies, “I don’t know what you’re talking about.”
The interpreter tells the hood, “He says he doesn’t know what you’re talking about.”
The hood pulls out a .38 and places it in the ear of the deaf collector. “Now ask him where the money is!”
The interpreter signs, “Where is the money?”
The deaf man replies, “The $40,000 is in a tree stump in Central Park.”
The interpreter says to the hood, “He says he still doesn’t know what you’re talking about and doesn’t think you have the balls to pull the trigger.”
