Riddles: What Am I?

 I travel around the world, yet I remain in the corner. What am I?

 

 

I can sizzle like bacon, I am made with an egg.

I have plenty of backbone, but lack a good leg.

I peel layers like onions, but still remain whole.

I can be long like a flagpole, yet still fit in a hole. What am I?

 

 

I drink and I drink and I drink, more than my share until I'm packed.

It's not until I am pressed that I give any of it back. What am I?

 

 

With metal fangs I lie in wait, I need not stealth nor bait.

My prey comes but never alone, and to all I take vicious hold.

I bring them together like glue, and escape me they all do. What am I?

 

 

I have no edges yet sharp I can be, and with no form even flat, you see.

I can be held but not touched, I can be hit but not clutched. What am I?

Still thinking on the other two...
