: : : Hey guys, need help!
: : : Got this e-mail this morning, had it before but can't remember how to solve it. Any chance one of you knows the answer?... I'm guessing it has something to do with ONE...
: : : 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?
: : : _______gry?
: : : The answer would be appreciated!!!
: : P.s. Sorry, I know it isn't exactly a phrase!!!

Cheers all you guys, I think you're right, the third word must be 'language' and whoever ciculated the e-mail made it even more ambiguous with the capitalisation of ONE. Ah well, guess i'll go back to my friends and tell them to stop racking their brains. As the link above suggests, I should have more important things to do!!!
