This came over the fax today. Does ANYONE know the answer to this
riddle?

There a 3 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 carefully, I've given
you the third word.

What is it _______gry?

We're all stumped. Write me you know the answer, please!

Hi!

There are 3 additional words -

'Puggry,' 'aggry,' and 'gry.'

A puggry is a type of headgear, an aggry is a glass bead, and a
gry is a unit of measurement.
