My Father is the Greatest!

These three boys are in the schoolyard bragging of how great their fathers are: The first one says:

- Well, my father runs the fastest. He can fire an arrow, and start to run, I tell you, he gets there before the arrow.

The second one says:

- Ha! You think that's fast! My father is a hunter. He can shoot his gun and be there before the bullet.

The third one listens to the other two and shakes his head. He then says:

- You two know nothing about fast. My father is a civil servant. He stops working at 4:30 and he is home by 3:45!
