It appears that Jay Garrick is in danger of losing his title as champion liar at the Liar's Club, when Emerson Kinnick notifies the club members that he has a winged horse on his property. Unfortunately for Kinnick, when he drives a few of the members out to see the steed, he finds the horse gone and his new stablehands (the Three Dimwits) giving lame excuses for its disappearance.
