The Last Word!

If all the English words in use, are put in alphabetical order, which would bee the last word?

After a really hectic three weeks of work, came the ThanksGiving weekend. I profoundly thank the ThanksGiving, for, it could not have come at a more appropriate time. :)

Drove over to Las Vegas. Chose not to travel on the wednesday evening and sunday evening, and thankfully avoided the hours and hours of traffic jams.

On the way in I-15, was this exit named ZZYXZ. Among all the curiosity it raised, the first one was how to pronouce it.

Please find related information here, and this supposedly is the the last word.! :)

I have seen it in person since we (amma, appa and anna with his family) did a driving tour of Arizona, Nevada and Cal in 1999. But there are names here that will be funny when you read those exit signs - in the Northeast, we have such examples as Northeast Rising Sun and Promised Land :-)
