This joke was emailed to me the other day. It may be more offensive to lawyers than the Deaf, but if you are Deaf and offended, let me know (and why it’s offensive to you – I want to learn)!
A Deaf accountant was accused of cheating his boss out of $10 Million. When the boss goes to confront the accountant about his missing $10 million, he takes along his lawyer who knows sign language.
The boss tells the lawyer, “Ask him where’s the money?
The lawyer, using sign language, asks the accountant “where’s the money?” The account signs back, “I don’t know what you are talking about.” The lawyer tells the boss, “He says he doesn’t know what you are talking about”
The boss pulls out a pistol, puts it to the accountant’s temple and says, “Ask him again!” The lawyer signs to the accountant, “He’ll kill you if you don’t tell him!”
The accountant signs back, “OK!!!! You win! The money is in a brown briefcase, buried behind the shed at my cousin’s house.”
The boss asks the lawyer, “What did he say?”
The lawyer replies, “He says you don’t have the guts to pull the trigger.”
