    Inluding, apparently 'gry' by itself.

    The correct wording of this puzzle is (according to a quick Google search) as follows:

    "Think of words ending in -GRY. Angry and hungry are two of them. 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."

    Indeed. Haven't you figured it out yet?
