This offbeat tale finds parents searching for a baby-sitter for their young son. They manage to locate a sitter who is a clown in maniacal makeup. After tickling the boy in a suggestive manner, the parents leave and the clown tells the story of Snow White then goes off to read. But after the young boy pesters him into reading the newspaper to him, he tells a harrowing tale of a shipwreck before the boy falls asleep. The clown later wakes up the boy to ask where his parents have put his pay and says that he has to leave for another job. When he discovers there is no pay, he removes a picture from the wall, removes his makeup and leaves. The boy watches as the man waits downstairs for the rainstorm to pass so he may leave.
