Opening Words: Women value quality. Men value size.
Plot: Rumors are flying around Possum Lake about a big thing coming through on the highway. People set up to watch it from all the high locations in the area, urging Red to start a rumor of his own to get everyone off of the best turf so that he can have the best tailgate party. Dalton tries to cash in on the event by making shirts and other swag patronizing this big thing. Vendors set up barbecue joints, carnival games, and pony rides. A betting pool even forms, where people bet how many wheels the truck carrying this thing has. Red bets 1,000 wheels. People are so infatuated with the attractions that everyone but Harold misses the big thing. Harold films it, hoping to get rich. As it turns out, they didn't really care about the big thing, just the complimentary attractions. Harold also informs everyone that the contraption had 59 wheels. Apparently, Red wins.
