A carnival owner comes across small aliens who are spraying crops so that humans who eat the food will produce midgets so they won't have a size advantage when they invade, but he fools them into leaving Earth by claiming that the food is only producing small children ten percent of the time and producing giants the rest. He displays his circus giant to them as proof and they buy into his lie and leave.
