My 1st go at this (and first post here). I hope you like.

  1. This puzzle is degrading.
  2. There are plants (with ain)
  3. And the clues are quite obtuse.
  4. It is a smelly, meaty extrude of a puzzle:
  5. My excrement flowing out of me.
  6. I take pleasure in your suffering

The answer is:

A B A S E S
B A N A N A
A N G L E D
S A L A M I
E N E M A S
S A D I S T

I think the only ones that require particular explanation are:

BANANA - As per explanation from rand al'thor, a banana looks a bit like a plant-ain

and

ANGLED - As in obtuse angle

2. There are plants (with ain)

Plantain looks a bit like banana, so I'll say BANANA for this one.

4. It is a smelly, meaty extrude of a puzzle:
5. My excrement flowing out of me.

One of these is probably MANURE. If the second clue is BANANA, then it must be the fourth and not the fifth that's MANURE.

1. This puzzle is degrading.

Given 2 and 4, this could now be OBAMAS ("we will degrade and ultimately destroy...")

3. And the clues are quite obtuse.
6. I take pleasure in your suffering

Still not sure about these.

  • $\begingroup$ Only one of those is correct. $\endgroup$ – Avon May 23 '15 at 0:46
  • $\begingroup$ @Avon BANANA or MANURE? Or would that be giving away too much? :-) $\endgroup$ – Rand al'Thor May 23 '15 at 0:51
  • $\begingroup$ It would be a spoiler in a comment. I would think 4 and 5 are probably the hardest to get so I would leave them to last. $\endgroup$ – Avon May 23 '15 at 1:18
