Jared described their relationship to BuzzFeed News as "two buddies living together."

"We joke around a lot," he said.

Recently, Jared and his dad were joking about how they couldn't ever decide on where to go to eat when taking a woman on a date.

"He told me he had an idea," Jared said.

A few days later, Jerry got a package in the mail. He later unveiled to his son his brilliant creation.

Jerry's dad had printed out all the restaurants they like to go to, and made a "wheel of food."

"They spun it once and they went and ate there," he said.

Both father and son shared the creation on social media. Jared posted it to Twitter because he said "I figured someone would get a kick out of it." It has been retweeted more than 3,000 times.
