The mafia was looking for a new man to make weekly collections from
all the private businesses that they were 'protecting'. Feeling the heat
from the police force, they decided to use a deaf person for this
job--if he were to get caught, he wouldn't be able to communicate to the

picks up over $50,000. He gets greedy, decides to keep the money and
stashes it in a safe place.
The mafia soon realizes that their collection is late, and sends
some of their hoods after the deaf collector. The hoods find the
deaf collector and ask him where the money is. The deaf collector

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