Riddle? -- or Hoax!
by Paul Niquette
ngry 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, for I have already given you the third word. 
What is it?

Whatever the classification, the following rhyme delights children:

Railroad crossing.
Look for the cars.
Can you spell this
Without any Rs?

Imagine their joyful dispositions as they eagerly demonstrate an emerging sophistication to their compliant, bewildered, and good-natured elders.

What has two wheels, seven letters, 
and starts with the letter B?
