container in a container? father and son? i dont get it. i hate it when people use pointless metaphores that have nothing to do with the thing they're trying to describe. it just makes the riddle harder(in a boring, impossible way. not a challenging, fun way).

a coconut has two layers. Therefore, there is a container in a container. The outer layer has been called as the father while the inner the son.

While obscure references that seem to have nothing to do with the subject make for a challenging puzzle, there should be something in the teaser that makes the puzzle solvable.
