Mr. Strong is so strong from eating many 'eggs', enough that he can break things, until he finds a farmer whose cornfield is on fire. Mr. Strong is so strong he picks up the farmer's barn and fills it with his 'water', pours the 'water' on the cornfield, extinguishing it. Mr. Strong is rewarded with 'eggs' from the chickens on the farm. At the end of the story, the reader is surprised to find out that Mr. Strong is having ice cream.
