My brother is someone who gets a question and stops at nothing–nothing–until he finds the answer. He won’t flag or fail, he won’t ever give up, he won’t ever surrender or admit defeat until he has that knowledge in his hands.
So, naturally, I ask him:
“What are the three words in the English language ending in -gry?”
Last I saw of him, he was rifling through the dictionary. Oooh, he’s gonna hate me for this.
You know, given some of the other posts about evilness on the boards in the last few months, we could probably get some sort of Evil Conspiracy going.
I get to be in charge of Evil IT and Evil Henchperson Recruiting.

“Think of words that end in GRY. Angry and hungry are two of them. There are only three words in the English language. What’s the third word? It’s something that people use every day.”
And, of course, the answer is “language”. “Language” is the third word in “the English language”, and is used every day. What makes it a joke is that everyone tries to think of a third common word that ends in GRY, when of course, no such word exists, and they’ve been tricked.
