SHORT, BUT BEAUTIFUL LOVE STORY
A man and a woman who had never met before, but who were both married to other people, found themselves assigned to the same sleeping room on a transcontinental train.
Though initially embarrassed and uneasy over sharing a room, they were both very tired and fell asleep quickly, he in the upper berth and she in the lower.
At 1:00 AM, the man leaned down and gently woke the woman saying, ‘Ma’am, I’m sorry to bother you, but would you be willing to reach into the closet to get me a second blanket? I’m awfully cold.’
‘I have a better idea,’ she replied, ‘Just for tonight, let’s pretend that we’re married’.
‘Wow! That’s a great idea!’ he exclaimed excitedly.
‘Good,’ she replied, ‘Then get your own blanket!’
After a moment of silence, he rolled over and farted.
A Mafia Godfather finds out that his bookkeeper, Guido,
has cheated him out of $10,000,000.00
His bookkeeper is deaf. That was the reason he got the job
in the first place.
It was assumed that Guido would hear nothing so he would
not have to testify in court.
When the Godfather goes to confront Guido about his missing
$10 million, he takes along his lawyer who knows sign language.
The Godfather tells the lawyer,
“Ask him where the money is!”
The lawyer, using sign language, asks Guido,
“Where’s the money?”
Guido signs back,
“I don’t know what you are talking about.”
The lawyer tells the Godfather,
“He says he doesn’t know
what you’re talking about.”
The Godfather pulls out a pistol,
puts it to Guido’s head and says,
“Ask him again or I’ll kill him!”
The lawyer signs to Guido,
“He’ll kill you if you don’t tell him.”
Guido trembles and signs,
“OK! You win! The money is in a brown
briefcase, buried behind the shed at my cousin Bruno’s house.”
The Godfather asks the lawyer,
“What did he say?”
The lawyer replies,
“He says f— you. You don’t have the balls to pull the trigger.”
