David Letterman is not the mathematical one and he uses his voice to entertain and he has the smirk.

Is the Late Show a work of art? The Top Ten lists are unusual collections.

No, not a painting.

Letterman is the David referred to in the second clue. (Uma, Oprah! Oprah, Uma!--but what's in a name.:) ) Armed with this identification, you might be able to progress further with the clues?!

Letterman, the Late Show, and the Top Ten lists are not part of the answer to "What am I?"

Does Letterman refer to clothing with insignias, logos, Coats of Arms?

Does the sprinkler system refer to insect larvae?

Are you the Grub Family Crest?:D

Did you think Grub Family Crest fit the first clue? Hmmm, well giving you the benefit of the doubt.

I don't know what can exclude the Grub Family Crest:)

How about

I was created in the 20th Century.

I wasn’t that random was I? I thought Coat of Arms could have been close, esp in tandem with the uncommon clothing clue.

This is a bit different from the riddles I’m used to - what happens after 20 questions?

Neither a statue nor "a statue".

There are a small number of us. We would be identical except for a fairly minor feature, indicated by the second clue, which makes us each unique.

Not worn in either sense of the word. Funny how the same word can mean different things.

I would assume I am looked at and admired.

No practical use above and beyond being a "work of art".

Actually, when we play that game, people make the most outrageous arguments for why their answer fits each clue, just to get another clue. Grub Coat of Arms would be par for the course:) The game doesn't end at a set number, it just ends when either the answer is guessed or if no one can come up with another guess that fits all the clues, then the answer is revealed.

After reviewing some threads, I think the first three clues taken together make up a riddle which isn't any more difficult than many of the ones you have solved here. You've narrowed it down some, a breakthrough is probably not far away.

Airport was actually pretty good guess. They are far more useful than I am though.

The sprinkler system / woodpecker / shrike = holes

The water will make holes in your lawn, the woodpecker makes holes in trees and the shrike makes a hole in it’s prey by impaling it on thorns. Erk!

Letterman = insignia / logo

Unusual construction / made up of materials that have been used in clothing

Airport = flight

Shuriken

Image

A traditional Japanese weapon (insignia of the Ninja) that is thrown through the air (flight) but is less useful than an airport.

It has unusual construction and is made from needles, nails, and knives, as well as coins, washers, and other flat plates of metal which have all been used in clothing. It is a work of art and most homes won’t have one. And it has a hole.
