I'm many things.

You can eat me.
You can write with me.
Twice a day I am your silhouette.
I'm a painter.
I'm a pirate.
I'm a patriot.

I'm many things.

On second thoughts, if it isn't obvious, you can ask me some basic questions to get you going!

Is the thing some kind of object that you can manipulate and change into many things? Like dough? Is it up to you to make it what you want? Is it something that is eaten by a lot of people? I mean, is it conventionally accepted as food? Oh, and of course the obvious question : Is is H?A?M? or an object? Animal?

Is it something that's known to pretty much everyone? Something common? Something electronic? If yes, is it a robot? Or something similar? A toy? Does it provide entertainment? Is it something that kids can be seen with? Or adults?

HINT: Calling it 'it' is in itself misleading. It's obvious that no one word can define all those 6 statements. So look for something with different names referring to a common 'thing'

I can think of a meat puppet, being the something you can eat, a pencil puppet being something you can write with, a shadow puppet being the silhouette...but I'm not sure on the other 3

MEGA HINT! : This is lateral thinking not literal thinking, so dont think of edible shadows that leave marks on paper, and occasionally paint while treasure hunting to uplift their country :-D ... would be helpful to know that it's merely the name of each variety that would give the impression of each individual statement like 'You can eat me'

When you say different varieties, would that also mean different -
types?
brands?
models?
sub-categories?
classes?

Is the answer a (type of) vehicle?
a (type of) weapon?



Are these clues being interpreted correctly?

You can eat/write with me - a type of food/writing tool that shares it's name with a variety of the thing.

I'm a painter/pirate/patriot. - a famous painter/pirate/patriot whose name is the same as a variety of the thing.

That was a brilliant attempt, but the other 3 clues aren't satisfied

I hope all this isn't completely off track. Sadly, completely IRR, but would have made a great puzzle. Anyhow, this is way closer to the approach I was hoping you would take... keep cracking!

When you say different varieties, would that also mean different -
types?
brands?
models?
sub-categories?
classes?
SVV of types / models

Is the answer a (type of) vehicle? No
a (type of) weapon? No

Are these clues being interpreted correctly?

You can eat/write with me - a type of food/writing tool that shares it's name with a variety of the thing. Perfect

I'm a painter/pirate/patriot. - a famous painter/pirate/patriot whose name is the same as a variety of the thing.Perfect

It would now be useful to find out what the SVV of types / models is

stick?
I was thinking Chopsicks (or chicken drumsticks if it has to be food), a stick of charcoal, your shadow is stick-like very early and very late at night, You can paint with sticks... Apparently there is an RPG game called StickPirate, PATRIOT memory is also a company who make USB and RAM sticks...

Very wild guess, but i made all criteria!

In fact paint sticks aren't as crazy as I thought they were. Particularly face painting, but paint sticks are quite common. Not to mention stirring a tin of paint with a stick before painting a wall.

I guess I don't know Jack! hee hee!

Is the name Jack relevant at all to the other clues? if not, are the clues tied in together at all? by a word? an idea?
