in thread And while in uffish thought, the manxome foe I seek is

"uffish" isn't defined, so this can only be referring to
Jaberwocky, in which case the obvious answer is Bandersnatch
.

No, no, no! The frumious Bandersnatch is to be shunned, not hunted! Does nobody read the classics anymore? You might as well hunt a Jub Jub Bird! The prey to be sought is none other than the Jabberwock itself. Which I just happen to have as a pet, and I'll thank you not to hunt him. (alas, poor Frumious Bandersnatch passed away early this year)

    If there were a "right answer", you have got it, and for the right reasons. Good job. ;) ...just a little fun. Sorry to those who didn't like it. I intentionally posed it as a riddle, hoping some would dig in and figure out (based on those strange words) what the poll refers to.
