Uh, so, why the RIDDLES ?

WHY ? WHY ??! WHYYYYYYY ?!?!!

Why is a raven like a writing desk ? Why ? Because they were there, WHY NOT ? I'll tell you : I am what I am !

Maybe I'm a frustrated old second-rater named NASHTON, with a meaningless SHTICK, who first changed his name to EDWARD NIGMA...

Maybe...
 

Maybe I'm a SELF-DEPRECIATING scientist with an admiration for BRUCE WAYNE, eager to be regarded as Gotham's cleverest carbon-based life form...

Maybe...

Maybe I'm pathologically compelled to RIDDLE MY CRIMES before I commit them, a FLAW in an otherwise potentially GREAT crook...

Maybe...
 

Maybe I'm just WEIRRRRRRRRRRRRD !

I'm the RIDDLER. Isn't that enough ?
