Communication problem

Post by Erik_Kowal » Sat Dec 05, 2015 1:39 am

The Mafia was looking for a new man to make weekly collections from all the private businesses in Manhattan that they were 'protecting'.

Feeling the heat from the police force, they decide to use a deaf-and-dumb person for this job. If he were to get caught, he wouldn't be able to communicate to the police what he was doing.

In his second week, the collector picked up over $40,000. Getting greedy, he decided to keep the money and stashed it in a safe place.

The local Mafia bosses soon realized their collection was late, and sent some of their hoods after their deaf-and-dumb collector. When they found him, they asked where the money was; but as the collector was unable to communicate with the Mafia thugs, they decided to haul him off to an interpreter who knew sign language.

They told the interpreter: "Ask him where da money is".

The interpreter signed, "Where's the money?"

The deaf-mute signed back, "I don't know what you're talking about".

The interpreter relayed this to the chief interrogator: "He says he doesn't know what you're talking about".

The hood pulled out a .38 and poked the muzzle into the ear of the deaf-mute. "Now ask him where the money is!"

The interpreter signed, "Where's the money?"

The deaf man signed back, "I hid $40,000 in a tree stump that sits on a rocky rise in Central Park".

The interpreter told the hood, "He says he still doesn't know what you're talking about, and he doesn't think you have the balls to pull that trigger".
