Complete from A to Z

Jen and I were watching the British "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" earlier tonight, and the comment came up about the final letter in the alphabet. Here in America, it is pronounced "zee". In Great Britian, it is pronounces "zed". What flabbergasted me is that Jen didn't know this. She had no idea, which means I had to explain it.

Of course, then she asked why they are pronounced differently. Uh.... I dunno. Anyone have an idea of what to tell here, apart from "Don't ask me questions like that!"?
