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?
One.......

according to people in the internet at least. 1 is the common answer, the man is not part of the question, the question is "kittens, cats, sacks, wives how many are going to St. Ives? None of the kittens, cats, sacks, wives are going to St. Ives as far as we know.

It is not 10990.

Cat don't have feet they have paws.

So there are 14 feet and 10,976 paws in the buss.

The correct answer has always been one because the beginning of the riddle states the man is going to St. Ives. We are also meant to believe that the way they met is they were walking in opposite directions. That is the intention.

The man could have been a fast walker and passed this poor idiot (who was actually on his way to St. Ives) with 7 wives, 49 sacks, 342 cats, and 2401 kittens. I know if I was carrying that much baggage, I'd be walking pretty slow.
