Synopsis for "The Saucers Strike!"Edit

An armada of flying saucers invades Earth, but makes one crucial mistake--due to an error by their scanners, they believe that human beings are composed of an advanced form of metal. With their weapons keyed to destroy metal objects, they strike terror into the hearts of humans by destroying army tanks and other metal devices, but a hick farmer figures out their weakness when he single-handedly attacks them and finds that their weapons can't affect him. Also, in the different atmosphere of Earth, the aliens can be killed by a single punch. The alien army leaves, and the farmer is hailed as a hero (to his annoyance, because the celebrating mob is stepping on his crops).
