I thought "father/create" was a stretch. Father and creator - yes.
Otherwise, ok puzzle.
Try it again - I know you can make a better one! Thanks

Father is used as a verb here, not a noun. "To create, found, or originate."
It is even listed in the thesaurus as a synonym:

I am always first in 2013. Yaay me!
I like these kind of teasers. Easy to do, but it takes just a tad longer than the real easy ones. Thanks for this one. Someone quibbled about the word father which was used absolutely correct. To father something means to create. Get it?

Another fun teaser Marc. The only one that gave me any trouble at all was the fathef/create one, I used the hint for it then got it straight away.

Nice and easy. While I was taking my 2 mile walk yesterday I saw a fat-her. At least 350.
