Not differently from his brothers, Stúfur (Stubby) has a passion for food. His short legs don’t prevent him to embark in his yearly journey. He makes his appearance on the 14th of December.

Stubby was the third called,
a stunted little man,
who watched for every chance
to whisk off a pan.

And scurrying away with it,
he scraped off the bits
that stuck to the bottom
and brims – his favorites.

Despite his short size, Stúfur is a huge glutton. Scraping scraps of food from pans is a treat for him. Not by chance another nickname of his is Pönnuskefill (Panscraper). Unfortunately for him, nonstick cookware has become very popular in the last years.
