How to really mess up your kids’ spelling

September 8, 2008

The Barenaked Ladies has a new album out, bringing their trademark wit and sense of humour to children’s songs. This is especially apparent in the song “Crazy ABC’s,” which includes examples such as ‘q for qat,’ ‘g for gnarly,’ and ‘p for pneumonia, pterodactyl and psychosis.’  But closest to this blog’s heart, of course, is a discussion of ‘zed’ versus ‘zee’ (‘Zed, like Zed Zed Top’).
