Question

My daddy’s on strings, a comic amputee

A big, black egg-breaker, legless me?

A very busy bugger, I'll have to eat on the fly;

Speaking when older, my words . . . die.

I’m head and tails above the rest

Who lurk below with a hungry breast.

I’m in a half-way house expecting to grow

In leaps and bounds, until best in show.

I'm a "bit of a post" in a murky sea,

Please, oh please,

Lend a name to me!

My first guess would be a caterpillar, and my second guess would be a snail, but I dont think my second guess counts until Shakeepuddn says that my first is wrong. I don't know all the rules yet, being new. On that note (to rant in a spoiler), I actually found this website through the puzzles app on iGoogle. I got addicted, so I joined.

:D

I've just been informed that there's a slight error in the first line.

Here's a re-write:

So I take it no guess thus far are correct?
