Hieronymus Wienerstein has dedicated himself to discovering how to end starvation around the world. Through his extensive studies, he devises a technique that will make a potato grow to an enormous size to generate more food. Over time, Weinerstein constructs a device to achieve this and is eventually ready to test it with a potato on a stormy night.

Upon being hit by lightning, the potato suddenly becomes gigantic and Wienerstein is overjoyed. He takes it with him to his bedroom and goes to sleep, looking forward to his announcement the next day. During the night, the potato begins coming to life, growing legs and a face. It walks over to Weinerstein and attacks him by eating him. Weinerstein's headless body is found on the floor the next morning.
