Mein Auto: A bunch of things
A puzzlement.....

I wonder how long before someone cheats and looks this up on the web. I'll say one thing, I'd like to kick whoever thought this up.

There are three words in the English language that end in GRY.

One is hungry.

One is angry.

What is the third word.

You're right, that is incredibly stupid and not particularly clever or amusing. If the sentence was punctuated properly, it would be a dead giveaway.
You know what they say, "small things amuse small minds".

This is about as good a riddle as "How Long is a China-man" or "A man walks into a bar. Ping"

If it's any consolation, this thing drove me up the wall for 8 days before I was told the answer. I won't make you folks wait that long though.

Hangry.

In other words, you agree with me that the third word is Germany.
