    hey i got this email fowarded to me just now, and i was wondering has anyone seen this riddle before and does anyone know how to work it out?

    There are three words in the English language that end in "gry".
    ONE is angry and the other is hungry. EveryONE knows what the
    third ONE means and what it stands for. EveryONE uses them
    everyday, and if you listened very carefully, I've given you the
    third word.


    What is it?

    Read that link. It will explain the riddle & why it's a bit crap.

    Edit: The riddle you have posted has actually been written wrong. Which is why so many people get confused.

    That's just so stupid. Come on, the whole first sentence isn't even 'There are three words in the English language.' If it was, then the whole thing would make sense. The whole 'gry' part is what you focus on, and that should be acounted for. That is the most cruel joke that someone could play on someone, and I guess someone just had to much time on their hands to make it up in the first place.
