No guessers?

OK a clue....

"a man" can normally only do this although some women have been known to be able to. They usually work in circuses or side shows. There was a woman in the TV series Carnivale who could have done this.

[b7] "Carnivale". Now that was an off the wall series. Did anyone else on this Forum watch it. It had quite a cult following in the US. I wish they had been able to do one more season and thus finish it properly.

Think of words ending in -GRY. Angry and hungry are two of them. There are only three words in the English language. What is the third word? The word is something that everyone uses every day. If you have listened carefully, I have already told you what it is.

There's a lot of mis-direction in the riddle, the only bit that's actually relevant is:

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

Language...

Ash?
While a tiger eyed its prey and an eagle raged in a thunderous sky a river of darkness fell upon a burning sun and the wolf cried tis a time to die, thus did the angels weep as power and triumph in those golden eyes did creep.

This thread has been neglected for a while. If anyone else has one, post it as well, in the mean time, here's one to kick it off again:

Nope. It has nothing to do with the tails. It's to do with another part of the cat's anatomy and no, none of the three eyes. :lol:
