anyone remember Die Hard 3

As I was going to St Ives

I met a man with seven wives

Every wife had seven sacks

Every sack had seven cats

Every cat had seven kittens

Kittens, cats, sacks, wives

How many were going to St Ives?

Buses don't have legs.

Ok, after going to the range and firing a couple of boxes to clear my head, I gave the problem to my other half to figure out. She came up with 10,990 total legs of which 14 are on the bus, the rest, (10,976) are in the backpacks. There was no mention of a bus driver. Regis, this is my final answer.

I hate word problems, even though I have a four year degree, and to tell the truth, I am better at breaking legs than counting them.

Seven backpacks per girl = 49 backpacks= 0 legs (this is the catch I think!)
49 backpacks * 7 big cats=343 cats * 4 legs per cat = 1372 legs
7 little cats per big cat = 343*7=2401 little cats * 4 legs per cat = 9604 legs

14+0+1372+9604= 10990 legs

or 10992 with bus driver.
or 10994 with bus driver and creepy pedophile guy hiding in back
or 10996 with driver, pedophile, and crazy cat-lady
You sir, are my hero.

I'm not smarter than a fifth grader, but I can stay out late and drive. SO THERE.

As long as I get a share of the profits if there are any, I'm good to go. Small unmarked bills preferably.
