    Where they eating scrambled eggs?

  • Andy

    There were three of them, so they each had one egg. Let’s call them all “Frank”:

    There is Frank junior, the youngest of them.
    Then there is Frank – his father.

    We now have one son and one father.

    The third is Frank senior, the father to Frank.

    Now we have two sons – Frank Junior and Frank and two fathers Frank and Frank senior.

    3 men there: one the father of the second, who was the father of the third.

  • Andy, you are today’s winner!
    One of the ‘fathers’ is also a grandfather. Therefore the other father is both a son and a father to the grandson. In other words, the one father is both a son and a father.
