A Comment:

Every now and then the dreaded "GRY" puzzle makes the e-mail rounds. (And if you have not done so cut and past the "GRY" puzzle above and send to all your friends to drive them nuts.) I think what confuses me, and I think most of you are the little changes in the wording of the puzzle. Which can change the solution or even make it have no solution at all. If you got any other version than the one above, you were not sent the original one. Solution to the real "GRY" puzzle can be found below.

The Versions:

THIS IS THE REAL VERSION
(SOLUTION BELOW)
"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 everyone uses every day. If you have listened carefully, I have already told you what it is." 

VERSION 2
There are three words that end with "gry". Angry is one and hungry is another. What is the third word. Everyone uses it every day and Everyone knows what it means. If you have been listening, I have already told you what the word is.

VERSION 3
There are at least three words in the English language that end in g or y. One of them is "hungry", and another one is "angry". There is a third word, a short one, which you probably say every day. If you are listening carefully to everything I say, you just heard me say it three times. What is it?

VERSION 4
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, if you listened very carefully, I've given you the third word.  What is it?

The Solution:
Now it should be noted that if you were to check the
dictionary you will find a few other words ending in "GRY." Even gry is a word. But most of the versions of the puzzle state a common word or it states that the word is in the puzzle or related to it. The most common version (and correct version) is the one at the top of the page. And here is the breakdown of the puzzle and solution. My comments are in black and the puzzle in red writing.

"Think of words ending in 'gry'. Angry and hungry are two of them." The first two lines are a trick and mean nothing to the puzzle. There are only three words in the English language. What is the third word? The third word in "the english language" is LANGUAGE. The word is something that everyone uses every day. You use LANGUAGE every day if you talk. If you have listened carefully, I have already told you what it is." The word LANGUAGE appears in the puzzle. 

Conclusion to this puzzle, is that it has nothing to do with the letters "GRY" except to throw the puzzler off track.
