This is going to make you so MAD!
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?
Well, I ran across this while doing a search....
poontangry- the feeling of frustration resulting from the defeciency of poontang.
"UGRY - As in she so ugry."
I got it here.
So much for Sperring?!?!
This one has been going around for years. I first saw it over 10 years ago. I've been told it's a MF teaser with NO answer.
bootedaddy said it first.
the third word in " THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE" is just that-----LANGUAGE.
Older English Dictionaries list the word Aggry. Doubtful it's what the riddler was looking for but it is a word and was recognized as such in 1913 at least.
From Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913):
Aggry \Ag"gry\, Aggri \Ag"gri\, a.
Applied to a kind of variegated glass beads of ancient
manufacture; as, aggry beads are found in Ashantee and Fantee
