    A RIDDLE THAT'LL KILL YOUR BRAIN!



    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?

    You're right, but the way this one's worded, there actually is an answer, just gotta think about technacalities and such...

  6. I know the answer...but I won't post it, as some people probably would want to think about it for a while... ;)
     
  7. I remember this ONE, and I know that it has something to do with the final question asked, and how you assume it's asking you for a word ending in "gry", but it's not, and I think it might be "one". However, it's possible that the wording got messed up because I didn't see you explicitly ask for that. It still seems like you're asking for a third word that ends in "gry".

    Something's not clicking.

    The word is going. The third word in the riddle is going.

    OK,then "three".

    If that's it, the wording is still too fuzzy. It's not like "oh duh heh you got me", it's more like "oh, I guess that's what you mean".

    edit: i can remove this if it's correct, but I just didn't scroll anyway because I figured the answer would appear in the thread. :p
