Zed?

Recommended Posts

Apart from the words like colour, centre, cheque, realise, one of spelling we did adopt from the British is the spelling for tires. I wonder why that is? I think Australians spell it tyres as well as the British?

So Americans pronounse the striped horse Zebra as ZeeBra

Do Aussies pronounce it as Zed Bra? Heh

actually the french say "zed". it's still a "z" to me ;)

Ahh, I was misled by a frenchman then. Maybe that was he "pet name" for his z car.

And now for something completely different.

Whats you pet name for your z car if you have one?

Mines known as "The Zed" as in "Going out to the garage to work on The Zed".

The Silvia is "The Little Car". Name inherited from the previous owner. Unless I think of something better. I Used to call it "the white car", but now I have 2 white cars, so that reverted back, and the other white car is "The Skyline".

Aussie Rob...you're a sad man. ROFL

New Zealand, meaning new land of ZEAL, or Aotearoa (local native language translated to "land of the long white cloud", named after the massive bank of shitty weather that sits on us that was expelled from the east coast of Aussie)

It should be called "land of the every lasting zed resto project" or "land of the self depleting wallet"

I'd love it to be full of Zeds or Zees really, but alas it isn't so.

What about Opzeeland?
