  1. Not the most well worded riddle I’ve seen. 107 people went to the picnic, if I’m to take that 3 baby sentence the right way.
    Wait. 2. 2 went to the picnic.

  2. As I was going to Saint Ives
    I met a man with seven wives.
    Each wife had seven cats,
    each cat had seven kits.
    Kits and cats, man and wives,
    how many were going to Saint Ives?

      • Insufficient information. Nothing indicates the man he met was going the opposite direction. He could have caught up with him or the man could have caught him. Additionally, nothing indicates he was not part of a larger party. In the picnic quiz, it was clearly “the picnic” being discussed. In this instance, there aren’t the same constraints that limit it to one person.

        • I love this riddle. It was featured in Die Hard with a Vengeance (the third one with Sam Jackson and Bruce Willis running around New York solving riddles). I believe they solved it by answering “1”.

  3. It’s a bit hard to take the statistical probability report from someone who can’t type “you” or “are.”

    Or maybe it’s just astonishing and amazing to undereducated teenagers..

    Or I could be a bitter old hag.. 😉

  4. None, cause mom and dad stayed home and had a picnic in the bedroom. She chowed down on a hot dog and he had pie.

  5. Does any family actually go to a picnic anymore?

    Maybe to Ronny’s for a pre-diabetic, pre-obesity, pre-hypertension excursion.

  6. Very simple, there were three people at the picnic. Mr. and Mrs. Jonah, and the narrator of the riddle. People always forget the narrator. Like all those things written in the bible about what Jesus said and did while “alone” in the desert. The narrator, people.

  7. To answer Jarrod’s “questioning of the stats”. One Hundred surveyed, 98 were O.b.a voters. Result 2% correct.

  8. The answer is one. Mrs.
    Mr Jonah has 35 granddaughters and 105 great-grandchildren. If you take spouses into account, that’s at least 185 people. That averages to one relative’s birthday more than every other day. Not to mention the pour soul who has to host holiday gatherings.
    So although only Mr and Mrs went on the picnic, it was only Mrs who was “having” a picnic.
