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?

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.

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
    in Africa.
