The first time I looked at this, I started at it for ages without any idea at all, then it clicked, I think it's:

Yay! My turn again I guess...

I need no food to keep me strong,
My belly's big, my one arm long,
My hat is hard, my bottom tough,
I drink and I eat, and that's enough,
For food I'm given; I give the same,
So tell me, can you guess my name?
The duke, the wanderer, the philosopher, the mariner, the warrior, the strategist, the storyteller, the wizard, the wayfarer...

I'd be more apathetic if I weren't so lethargic.

CG along the right lines, but Ierne is right - I was thinking specifically a saucepan (hence one arm, and a "hat" being the lid).

Right, Ierne, your turn to try riddle writing I guess! :)

i've never written a riddle before and may have made this waaay too hard, but here goes:

i was a god once
until you made me an enemy and a thing of riducule
men run from me in terror
but children hold me close
i search for warm places and sweet things
you sing to keep me at bay
when you find me you do not want me
but you are frightened that one day i might never come back

Once you realize what a joke everything is, being the Comedian is the only thing that makes sense.

Jubal got it right first, but Clockwork is spot on about singing if you are hiking :) The Ainu do have a bear god, as do the Sami (and there are probably others I don't know about, given how frequently bears appear in mythology as magical beings).

My comparative mythology evidently needs improvement, and I didn't know the singing thing at all. Hats off on those ones.  :tusky:

Let's see how you find this one (I think this may be an "easy but the poem is nice" one, but I may be wrong):

Within this court they say
A hundred servant lads are found,
Their messages a-carrying,
All told without a sound;
And all of them, yes all of them,
Within three walls are bound.
The duke, the wanderer, the philosopher, the mariner, the warrior, the strategist, the storyteller, the wizard, the wayfarer...
