    Re: -gry

    From yahoo! questions:


    There is a popular, but misleading riddle that circulates around the internet that suggests that there is a third -gry word, but there isn't, not one that is in common use anyway. In archaic forms of English (Middle English and Olde English) there are other words that end with -gry, such as 'meagry', meaning 'meagre-looking', but this is obsolete and not a true answer to the puzzle.
