I think you've phrased that wrong. If it were:

"Angry" and "Hungry" are words that end in "-gry". There are three words in the common tongue. What is the third?

Then "tongue" would be the answer. The first sentence can be ignored as it has nothing to do with the question.

Doesn't work with your riddle as you wrote it wrong

"Angry and hungry are two words that end in '-gry'. There are three words in the English language. What is the third word? Everyone knows what it means and everyone uses it every day. Look closely and I have already given you the third word. What is it?"

becomes

"There are three words in the English language. What is the third word?"

clearly the 3rd word is 'language'!

A man gets in a plane and flies 100 miles north, then 100 miles east, then 100 miles south, and is thenbin the same place that he started. How is this possible?

A guess - he starts 100 mi + 50/pi miles south of the north pole. he goes north 100 mi. He goes east following a circle round the pole of circumference 100 mi (hence the 50/pi) and at the point of completion goes south 100 mi to his starting point.

dear god i need to get out more

Ah, here's one I just remembered:

Two twins were born only an hour apart, yet they celebrate his birthday two days before the other. How is this possible?

OK so the explaination....

one for you probability guys really...

but you have two coins... A and B
you are told one of them cannot be a 20p so say a isn't the 20p... so B can be... A is obviously 10p

Actually Jonesie, you're on the right track, there's just one thing you're missing.

Hopefully logical thought wouldn't bring you to the conclusion that killing your sister would be a good way to pull !

they were born either side of mignight, and the first was on the 28th of feb, so they celebrate the birthdays 2 days apart every leap year.

edit: or they were born different sides of the dateline and different sides of midnight...
