    Okay so whoever solves the riddle and has the answer confirmed by the poster, gets to post a new riddle and the cycle repeats. I'll start.

    What goes up a chimney down, but won't go down a chimney up?

    Ahhhhh the pressure! Ok here goes

    This thing all things devours:
    Birds, beasts, trees, flowers;
    Gnaws iron, bites steel;
    Grinds hard stones to meal;
    Slays king, ruins town,
    And beats high mountain down.

    I think that's time.. I recognize the riddle as one told by Gollum in The Hobbit, chapter 5 Riddles In The Dark.

    Alright, well I'm not very good at making up riddles but I did my best.. Also I find creepy riddles to be the very best.. So.. Here goes:
    Our guests howl that we're evil,
    when they notice their place in the meal.
    But it's no big deal why;
    We're just one happy tribe,
    And we get really fed up with people.
    What are we?
