Hello,

In one year a father will be 100 times as old as his son.

In nine years he will be only 4 times as old as his son.

What's daddy doin'?

Greetings

Hello, earboth!

I've heard a slightly different version.

I think it's funnier . . . it caught me completely off-guard.

In one year a mother will be 100 times as old as her son.

In nine years she will be only 4 times as old as her son.

Where's the father?

But you're right: Your version is much more surprising, so - with your permission - I would like to use your text.

Thanks for the modified problem.
