    ok, haven't even managed to figure this one out myself, have gone through it word for word but can't figure it out. Maybe one of you can put my mind at rest.

    RIDDLE THAT'LL KILL YOUR BRAIN

    This is going to make you so MAD!

    There are two words that end with "gry".
    Angry is one and hungry is another.
    What is the third word.
    Everyone uses it every day and
    Everyone knows what it means.
    If you have been listening,
    I have already told you what the word is.

    PS: I know this says "two words" I'm not sure if that is the answer to the riddle or just a typo from the person who e-mailed it to me.

    As Stircrazy said in their first post the third word is rgy. I check it out for myself and Stircrazy is right. Copy the riddle and then paste in the search box at the site that I've got a link to and see what u get.


    well the answer can be found here

    :rolleyes: But it did not say what is the third word that end with "gry". It said "what is the third word".

    A play on words. :D

    Plus... we all know it and use it every day. Hmmmmm... "gry", I don't think we all knew that. Nor do we use it everyday.

    Anywho... ;)

    The riddle doesn't say there are three words that end in gry, it says there are two, it is not a typo!!!
    Gonaads is right.

    Something i just noticed... in a grammatical meaning... 'WHAT' is the third word... there is no '?' (question mark at the end) so therefore 'What' is the third word ;)

    P.S. Some words in the oxford dictionary which end in 'GRY' :p

    aggry: A glass bead found buried in the ground in Africa. A word of unknown origin. Seemingly always used attributively, as in aggry beads.

    braggry: A variant form of braggery.

    conyngry: An obsolete dialectal variant of conyger, itself an obsolete term meaning 'rabbit warren'.

    gry: The smallest unit in Locke's proposed decimal system of linear measurement, being the tenth of a line, the hundredth of an inch, and the thousandth of a ('philosophical') foot. Also the grunt of a pig, an insignificant trifle, or a verb meaning to roar.

    iggry: Egyptian colloquial Arabic pronunciation of ijri: 'Hurry up!', brought back after the First World War by members of British and Australian forces who had fought in Egypt.

    mawgry: from Old French: being regarded with displeasure.

    meagry: Having a meager appearance.

    nangry: A variant form of angry.

    podagry: Dodder, or the condition of a plant infested with it.

    puggry: A variant form of puggree, a light scarf wound around a hat or helmet to protect the head from the sun.

    enjoy :p
