From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (15Feb98) [foldoc]:
   gry
  
      "Angry" and "hungry" are two words that end in "gry".
      There are three words in the English language.   What is the
      third word?   Everyone knows what it means and everyone uses it
      every day.   Look closely and I have already given you the
      third word.   What is it?
  
      Answer: "language".
  
      This puzzle has circulated widely on the Internet for some
      years, but usually in an abbreviated form such as "Name three
      common English words ending in 'gry'", which has no good third
      answer.
