The Hulk is a big green man.

But his folks (his mom and dad) are stronger than him.

So they hatch a plan for The Hulk to get even bigger.

They tell him to get a bucket, and fill it to the brim with bricks.

Then he has to lift that bucket up to his chin… and walk it to the ditch… and bring it back.

After that, he gets a cup of milk to drink, which will help him grow.

The Hulk can’t get any greener, but he will get bigger and stronger. ------------------------------- Explain It
