    Felson says to Behman who is with him:

    Felson: I will show you my home. And we will sit in the hall where my forefathers sat and drink ale. Tell tales few men have lived to tell.
    Behman: And fewer still will believe.

    What is the meaning of "And fewer still will believe"?
    Does it mean Felson is bad at telling tales ?
