    $\begingroup$ Is the word "queue" misspelled intentionally in the hint? or do you really intend "cue" as in "signal someone gives"? $\endgroup$ – Nzall Jun 6 '16 at 12:51
  • $\begingroup$ @Nzall I don't mean a signal. $\endgroup$ – Brent Hackers Jun 6 '16 at 13:03

    $\begingroup$ So the spelling of cue is deliberate? $\endgroup$ – Nzall Jun 6 '16 at 13:14

Dunno how to spoiler but;

Are you a stick?

I can walk and jump and make things me,

walking stick, pogo stick , make things stick

I can bring happiness, play sports and cut,

a large variety of sticks can be smoked (in dutch a joint is aka a "sticky") to make you "happy", there are polo sticks and hockey sticks, and in fact cutting sticks used in the printing industry.

I can possess great poise and beauty,

lipstick and walking sticks both fit the bill imo.

I can be baked, loud and doughnut.

some ***** invented a "donut stick" wich can in fact be baked! And a boomstick is either slang for a gun, tnt or a device to make your headphones go louder.

No idea what the hint is though... stick around while we find out...

OP's Intended Explanation

I can walk and jump and make things me,

Walking stick, pogo stick, glue stick

I can bring happiness, play sports and cut,

Joy stick, hockey stick, chop stick

I can possess great poise and beauty,

Majestic (Sorry!)

I can be baked, loud and doughnut.

Bread stick, drum stick, doughnut stick (because it rhymes but it does exist!)

And the hint was

A cue stick

  • $\begingroup$ @BrentHackers ... I wouldn't go the route of obscurity for the sake of a rhyme, especially if it doesn't form a good sentence structure. You know riddles don't have to rhyme, right? $\endgroup$ – feelinferrety Jun 7 '16 at 1:09

Are you

A trick shot in a game of pool?

I can walk and jump and make things me,

Trick shots like walk the dog, jumping the cue ball

I can bring happiness, play sports and cut,

Happiness if you win, pool is a sport, cut is another type of shot

I'm at a loss here, other pool jargon?

It fits with the hint though.
