Sam Jackson had over a thousand acres of tobacco that brought in so much money it made him the richest farmer in a town called Painville. Sam never had to worry about money for many years, but Sam's money making machine was about to run dry. Sam's ego and money got the best of him one day. Sam was drinking with some of the local farmer's down at the local tavern. Sam pulled out his wallet and started counting thousand dollar bills on the table in front of them. The farmer's weren't impressed. If anything they were jealous and had just about all the bragging they cared to hear. The farmer's told Sam they had to get back home because it was getting late. Sam said, "Go right ahead, I'll just keep counting my money."
The farmer's piled into their trucks. Instead of going home like they told Sam they were, they had something else on their minds. One of the farmer's said, "I don't know about you guys, but I think it's time we teach this egotistical money hungry farmer a lesson." Everyone agreed so they headed down to the gas station and filled up their gas cans and waited until after midnight before heading back to Sam's farm to set his tobacco field on fire.
