This is the right answer, but the original riddle was worded wrong. It should go like this:

 

"Angry" and "hungry" are two words that end in "gry". There are three words in the English language. What is the third word? Everyone knows what it means and everyone uses it every day. Look closely and I have already given you the third word. What is it?

 

So the third word in "the english language" is, you guessed it, language.

 

That was a waste of my 10 minutes, This is a stupid riddle!!!!!!

 

Everybody go back to your day now.

The answer is QGRY! I love those flat boxcars, and how they put the numbers on the right side instead of the left.

impossible

 

Words that end in - gry

 

I have stopped counting how many times I have received this question by email…

 

"There are three words in English ending in -gry. I only know hungry and angry. Please tell me what the third one is."

 

It is time to clear up this mystery once and for all.

 

There is NO mystery! This question has evolved into an urban legend that is impossible to solve.

 

The fact is there is NO third common word in the English language ending in -gry.

 

Sources claim that the question had been taken from an old book of puzzles, and had been given publicity on the Bob Grant radio talk show on WMCA in New York City in 1975.

 

One version is:

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.

 

Notice the third line "sounds" like a question when read.
