    World's toughest riddle

    There are three words in the English language that end with "gry." One is hungry and the other is angry. What is the third word? Everyone uses this word every day, everyone knows what it means, and knows what it stands for. If you have listened very closely I have already told you the third word.

    1. here is a list of words and meanings:

    aggry: Coloured and variegated glass beads of ancient manufacture, found buried in the ground in Africa. A word of unknown origin. Seemingly always used attributively, as in aggry beads.

    braggry: A variant form of braggery. Obsolete.

    conyngry: An obsolete dialectal variant of conyger, itself an obsolete term meaning “rabbit warren”.

    gry: The smallest unit in Locke’s proposed decimal system of linear measurement, being the tenth of a line, the hundredth of an inch, and the thousandth of a (“philosophical”) foot. Also the grunt of a pig, an insignificant trifle, or a verb meaning to roar. Obsolete.

    iggry: Egyptian colloquial Arabic pronunciation of ijri: “Hurry up!”, brought back after the First World War by members of British and Australian forces who had fought in Egypt.

    meagry: Having a meagre appearance. Obsolete.

    nangry: A variant form of angry. Obsolete.

    podagry: Dodder, or the condition of a plant infested with it.

    puggry: A variant form of puggree, a light turban or head-covering worn by inhabitants of the Indian subcontinent.

    2. The answer is three.
    It is the third word in the question, and the rest of the question is irrelevant: a red herring designed to put the solver off.
    3. dont argue, STFU

    That's not a riddle, it's just some lame ass joke that has double meanings, what would you expect if someone just tried the other meaning, even if you did take the "literal" meaning, parts of it doesn't make sense or add up.
