    Right, I'll have a go at #3:

    It comes after ear when you block out commotion ear plug
    It sits after spark for a car spark plug
    It lives after bath or it could mean promotion bath plug
    The ugliest on Bash Street by far... Plug

    So, I guess the answer is PLUG

    Or it comes before pass, coach or fright stage pass, stage coach, stage fright
    It?s restrained after ?ho? ? it?s a stamp after ?po? hostage, postage
    And its under me most Sunday nights?* stage

    Wow, Zentro. Looks good to me! You're either very smart or you just have waaaayyy too much time on your hands! Or, you really, really want a "Nine"-made avatar!

    Here's my try at 4.

    It?s cricket with leg square leg or apodally, slang for a square deal or square shake - in a saying with peg square peg in a round hole
    A mile makes a capital heart square mile or square measure, square capital, square center also town square
    With root or with dance - is it trendy? No chance! square root, square dance, square
    Face up to it - back to the start...square up, back to square one

    The answer is square.

    OK. When it comes to quantity of answer, Dick Tracy is out in front. Zentro - you missed a reference in one of your answers. And I ain't saying which one. Keep other riddles coming to keep this thread alive apart from these ones. It's the first post which explains EVERY reference in EVERY one of the six riddles that I'll take as the winner - so do feel free to steal other people's answers, copy other posts and generally squabble and bicker in a kids-waiting-for-christmas sort of way... ;)

    Aah, could it be:
    It lives after bath or it could mean promotion > bath plug and promote = plug

    Huh, nobody is interested in a genuine, original avatar by Nine :confused: That's a much better prize than the December giveaways at other sites.

    So here's my shot at number six:

    You know that my diction is free from affliction clue 1 of conundrum: speech
    So my clues are clipped, clear and crisp clue 2: speech
    My conundrum to see could possibly be conundrum is a riddle within this riddle: what is a homonym, since I can't see it, for clue 3
    A small rodent who suffers a lisp...clue 3: mouse?

    The answer is mouth

    There are only two more words to be found in this game! I might not have all the definitions on this one... Dontcha want a fabulous avatar?

    Yeah, I'd love to have a cool smiley avatar, but my brain doesn't think too clearly. :(
