As a Canadian, it drives me up the wall when I'm watching a Ski-doo video or TV segment & some Canadian that works for Ski-doo says MX Zee. Maybe I ought to send them an email  and straighten them out

People who say "bom-ba-deer" drive me nuts.  That's just thick-headed.
But here in the US, mx-zee is what we say because our alphabet goes w-x-y-zee, not w-x-y-zed, like you canucks.

Mxzed for everyone I know. Mxzee doesn't sound good in french anyway  
I know some people who call them yellow rockets which is a better suited name IMHO

My main beef is with that Kalhok guy that works for Ski-doo. His father was some big shot there. I wonder how he got the job? He was on Snowtrax this winter talking about the new sleds & when he was talking, he didn't sound too sure of himself, plus he kept saying zee.

Here at the Truck Plant, when the Americans are up from Detroit, it drives them crazy when we say Zed 71 or start talking metric

Yup, same thing in french too. And that W (double U) is double V in french which makes more sense

I like to say 'double V' just for fun, because that's what is, a double V!

Ha that reminds me why I used to always call you canucks "Metricans"!
