    I thought I would get a faster response in this section after i was told that this section existed. I did not read past general posts. This is a tough one, but the answer will truly makeyou kick yourself...

    i'm just nit-picking here-but if there are 3 of them and 1 is angry, and the other is hungry -- well, that doesn't make sense as you are implying that hungry is the only remaining answer, yet there is another one...sorry-i'm just kinda bored just now...😴

    Well MASSIMO? Is the answer, as some have suggested, hungry? Please say yea or nay so I might reduce the psychosis induced from this riddle. πŸ™„πŸ˜€πŸ˜›

    Well, wouldn't you believe it. GRY is indeed a word. Gry means:

    A measure equal to one tenth of a line.
