Default Brainiacs needed for riddle solving

A RIDDLE THAT'LL KILL YOUR BRAIN!

This is going to make you so MAD! There are three words in
the English language that end in "gry". ONE is angry and the other
is hungry. EveryONE knows what the third ONE means and what it
stands for. EveryONE uses them everyday, and if you listened very
carefully, I've given you the third word. What is it? _______gry?

OK, I guess I get to be the dipshit who says "I don't know, what?"

The actual answer to that one is "language" I think.. unless you got a messed up version of the riddle.
It'* like, there are three words in 'the english language.' The whole 'gry' crap is to throw you off.

---Correct Version---
Think of words that end in "G-R-Y." Angry and hungry are two of them. There are three words in the English language. What is the third word? People use this each and every day and if you have read this riddle carefully, the answer has already been given to you.
