Should be easy but I like the poem so just gonna share it.

 

What does man love more than life,
Hate more than death or mortal strife;
That which contented men desire,
The poor have, the Rich require;
The miser spends, the spendthrift saves,
And all men carry to their graves?

This riddle's been posted already I suspect. The answer is nothing.

There is a thing that dwells beneath the earth, has a dozen eyes, can be poisonous, and caused thousands to die in the 19th century.

 

And yet, despite the threat they pose, they dwell everywhere disguised in plain sight, and at least one of you here has come into contact with one of them in the last 24 hours.

 

Why shouldn't you panic?

I'm actually tempted to say Cholera and we don't give a crap because of the vaccine, but I doubt this is what you have in mind.

Nope, cholera's water-borne anyway so it doesn't fit the first clue.

The answer is potatoes.

 

Potatoes are underground, have 'eyes', are toxic if they're green (and belong to the deadly nightshade family), and the Irish Potato Famine of the 19th century killed around half a million people, if I recall my history right.

 

If none of you have eaten a potato product in the last 24 hours, I'll eat my hat.

Coincidentally I haven't eaten a potato in 24 hours. That was the only part that was confusing me.

 

Now I'd like to see you eat your hat :D

By the phrasing, only one person here has to have eaten a potato. Of course, it would probably not be you, since you somehow subsist almost entirely on a diet of rice and dead animals.

 

Oh well, it's for good reason that I tied a steak to my head.

I was thinking it was a vegetable or plant, but I got dissuaded by the specificity of the phrase "a dozen eyes". Surely potatoes have more than a dozen eyes?

It would be pretty silly to say "somewhere in the ballpark of 10 to 30 eyes", wouldn't it?

And my steak hat lives to see another day. Might not be a good thing, it's starting to attract birds.
