zab·ster zal·ad

Zabsterzalad zab·ster zal·ad (noun): A salad sold by Zabar's that closely resembles lobster salad, but whose primary ingredient is crawfish.

After a minor controversy erupted when Doug MacCash, a reporter for The Times-Picayune of New Orlean, noticed that Zabar's so-called "lobster salad" was actually made from freshwater crawfish, not lobsters, the salad has been renamed zabster zalad to better reflect its eternal lobsterlessness:

Zabar’s, the Upper West Side grocery store, has renamed the lobster salad that contains no lobster “zabster zalad.” The main ingredient remains the same: wild freshwater crawfish. Like the lobsterless lobster salad before it, “zabster zalad” also contains mayonnaise, celery, salt and sugar.

“It’s a combination of lobster and Zabar,” said Saul Zabar, the president and an owner of Zabar’s. “We could have called it Zobster salad, but our name is Zabar’s. And instead of the word ‘salad,’ we put a Z in there.”

For the record, he pronounced “zabster” to rhyme with Napster, the music-sharing service, not the ingredient that his lobster salad never had.

That was a Nice Blog. It was a great realization. The function of a steel ball bearing is to shrink rotating friction. It achieves this by using at least two races to include the balls and suggest the loads right through the balls.
