    I found this bit of insight at

    For reasons that we can't determine, the "-gry question" is turning up again and again from our patrons. The best and most comprehensive answer to it comes from the Stumpers discussion list for reference librarians, and we quote from it below.

    Here is the question in its correct "puzzle" form. "Think of words ending in -gry. Angry and hungry are two of them. There are only three words in the English language. What is the third word? The word is something that everybody uses everyday. If you have listened carefully , I've already told you what it is."

    The secret here is that the real question is "There are only three words in the English language. What is the third word?" That is, there are only three words in the phrase "the English language". The third word is "language", which is indeed something we use every day. The first two words are "the" and "English".

    Having found the answer to the actual riddle, however, you may still wonder if there are any other English words ending in -gry. There are.

    Thats not a riddle. Thats a poorly written paragraph. Not sporting or fun.
