|Sound familar - "There
are 3 words in the English..ahhh!
dreaded GRY riddle! To understand this riddle, let me give you some insight on how it all
got started - 20 years ago! This riddle, if told in it's "orginal form" is not
all that difficult to figure out. But it's been diluted and changed so much over the years
it has "no answer" if not told properly!
In its original form, the first two sentences have absolutely "nothing" to do with the question: "Think of words ending in -GRY. Angry and hungry are two of them." Ignore those two sentences. They are there only to throw you off. (Worked, didn't it?)
What's left is the actual riddle itself: "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."
The key is the phrase "the English language." In this three-word phrase, the third word is simply the word "language." "Language" is definitely something that "everyone uses every day"! Without that quirky little twist, the puzzle would just be another trivia question, and not a riddle.
Remember, the thing about riddles is, you must follow them to the letter or they just don't work. The GRY riddle has gotten so screwed up over the years, it's turned into somewhat of a hoax or a funky joke. Funky? www.funkypages.com
