The last letter of the alphabet should be pronounced "zee," not "zed," otherwise the alphabet song doesn't rhyme, amirite?

It's pronounced "zed" en francais. I don't know where else.

The letter Z and its pronunciation came well before the modern alphabet, let alone the alphabet song. Different languages and dialects pronounce it differently and it has nothing to do with making the song rhyme.

pronounced zed in england :)

zee came about because of sesame street. most countries pronounce it zed, except lots of people grew up with sesame street who made the alphabet song, so they think it's zee not zed. zee is an american thing

If non-Americans and some British pronounce is "zed" then is zebra pronounced zed-ebra? Or is zen pronounced zed-en?

clears throat Please note that I'm a female. Also add to your notes that this question was not to be taken seriously, I am quite far from stupid. I may say something that may not convey what I intended, but I do not consider that the same as having low intelligence.

And Americans (most of them anyway) trace there heritage back to these Europeans. So I guess that means we're all inbred?

So do non-Americans and some British people not have "jokes" either? I was almost certain they did

Ok, your comment actually made me laugh a little bit because:
A) Inbreds freak me out a little, so it's a little ironic that you chose to call me that.
B) An inside joke that's far too funny for you.
