    Muskogee Ok.
    A group from Chicago spent a weekend gambling in Las Vegas. One of the
    men on that trip won $100,000. He didn't want anyone to know about it,
    so he decided not to return with the others, but took a later plane home
    -- arriving back 3 a.m. He immediately went out to the backyard of his
    house, dug a hole and planted the money in it. The following morning he
    walked outside and found only an empty hole. He noticed footsteps
    leading from the hole to the house next door, which was owned by a
    deaf-mute. On the same street lived a professor who understood sign
    language and was a friend of the deaf man. Grabbing his pistol, the
    enraged man went to awaken the professor and dragged him to the deaf
    man's house.

    'You tell this guy that if he doesn't give me back my $100,000 I'm going
    to kill him!' he screamed at the professor. The professor conveyed the
    message to his friend, and his friend replied in sign language, 'I hid
    it in my backyard, underneath the cherry tree.'

    The professor turned to the man with the gun and said, 'He's not going
    to tell you. He said he'd rather die first.'
