"Cats and kittens may be headed to this" - a reference to a classic riddle
"As I was going to St Ives" is a traditional English-language nursery rhyme in the form of a riddle. Its Roud Folk Song Index number is 19772. The most common modern version is: As I was going to St. Ives, I met a man with seven wives, Each wife had seven sacks, Each sack had seven cats, Each cat had seven kits: Kits, cats, sacks, and wives, How many were there going to St. Ives? == Origins == The following version is found in a manuscript (Harley MS 7316) dating from approximately 1730: As I went to St. Ives I met Nine Wives And every Wife had nine Sacs, And every Sac had nine Cats And every...

@jafe Not that Google Maps knows about.

OpenStreetMap appears to know of exactly two Ives Streets in the UK. Neither of them is in a St Ives.

Q: Does a Backflip

Going hamateurIt swims. Does a backflip. Still swims. What it?

6:17 PM
@Deusovi I want it to be DODGING = evasive. "old Democrat rounds" can be OD turns around = DO (as in "to round on someone") and then of course there's… DGING, the chief (head) count of… no, maybe not.
1 hour later…
7:31 PM
no no... old is AGEY, it rounds up C (head of "count") in front of it to make CAGEY (evasive)
the extra word "democrat" and the incorrect enumeration are both there just to mislead us
should we wait for confirmation or shall i go next?
No need. That's gotta be it.
7:53 PM
old democrat could be OD, which rounds (receives) head (of the family), PA, and count which is QUE somehow, making OPAQUED (evasive)
feels like "evasive" has to be the def because it doesn't seem like an indicator and there aren't any short words meaning "evasive" that i know
Could evasive be an anagram indicator for old? I don't know Deusovi well, but that is the sort of thing I would do.
That might also explain why head count has the question mark...something tricksy in the definition there.
8:13 PM
dracula is a 7-letter count but don't see how the wp would work
evasive seems like an odd choice for anagram indicator when a standard one like "corrupt" would have worked just as well
maybe the def is "evasive old democrat", although that seems unnecessarily specific
CLINTON could be an "evasive old democrat"

I wonder if "rounds" can mean "round (=around) S". I've a strange feeling @Deusovi wouldn't do that.
