The saying "never let the truth interfere with a good story" is practically the state motto of Texas, the land of the tall tale. For instance, there's a tale of a woman going to the original Neiman Marcus store in Dallas and requesting the recipe for the delicious cookies. When she was told she would have to buy it the woman said it would be "two-fifty." The woman said fine and told them to add it to her bill. When she received her bill she was shocked to see the recipe was actually $250. This, of course, isn't true at all. Not only does the store not sell its recipes individually, they even put the cookie recipe online for free to quell the rumor. The story of the monkey-assed red Toyota is partially true, though Scaramanga points out this is only because of a very literal translation.
