A father

An 8-year old boy got on the bus, sat next to a man reading a book, and noticed he had his collar on backwards.

The boy asked why he wore his collar that way.  The man, who was a priest, said, “I am a Father.”

The boy replied, “My daddy doesn’t wear his collar like that.”

The priest looked up from his book and answered, “I am the Father of many.”

The boy said, “My dad has 4 boys, 4 girls and two grandchildren and he doesn’t wear his collar that way.”

The priest, getting impatient, said, “I am the Father of hundreds” and went back to reading his book.

The little boy sat quietly thinking for a while, then leaned over and said, “Maybe you should wear your pants backwards instead of your collar.”
