really good but easy

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:

A bit on the easy side,but at long last not an over used repeat!!
Jun 26, 2010

Well done, thanks for posting.
Jun 26, 2010

Easy but fun. Well done, I would like to see more of these, maybe a little harder.
Jun 26, 2010

My first one that I actually finished!
Meaning that it was too easy.
Jun 26, 2010

Well I for one didn't mind this teaser's being easy,, and it was a lot of fun.
Jun 26, 2010

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?
Jun 26, 2013

This one was just fine.

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.
Jun 26, 2013

Nice and easy. While I was taking my 2 mile walk yesterday I saw a fat-her. At least 350.
Jun 26, 2013

I liked this one, too! Thanks for posting.
Jun 29, 2013

Fairly easy and FUN - I enjoy your teasers - Thanks for posting

People who are religious and believe in God also refer to him as their father, and also that he is the creator, so that certainly fits that one to those who do not see the connection.
Jun 26, 2016

I got them all but #2 puzzled me. Finally after 8 minutes I made what seemed the only viable guess to #2 and delightfully- I'm right! I agree the answer is a bit of a "stretch." From the perspective of "father" being a noun, the two words do not match, but when considering verbs, then the answer works...arguably making #2 the best of the set.

it was fun! but I didn't do to well I need to put my thinking cap on a bit strait next tyme!
