Okay hold on to your Salad Dressing - I have recently seen two different Hidden Valley Ranch commercials and they both had actresses using Zazz to describe the dressing! I thought I had heard it wrong and it Rewound the clip (I have the digital recorder feature on my cable) and sure enough - Zazz!

I think Mr. Smiley needs to sue for intellectual property infringement.

George Will just added to his "Signs of the Coming Apocolypse": "the use of Zazz."

What a zazz!

I'm sure I was at Target when I heard a cashier say "Those boxers have Zazz!" Maybe it's time to move to another expression, otherwise, the lumber guys at Menards will be saying "These Anderson windows will add Zazz! to your kitchen."

I ran a Google image search on zazz and found this graph:

http://www.socalsupras.com/dyno/Zazz.jpg


I'm fairly certain that it shows a rise in the use of the term zazz in relation to torque. Or maybe it's in relation to horsepower.. I dunno.

But.. I did find another soda company stealing zazz for their campaign:

http://www.rareads.com/scans/16366.jpg

Apparently "Bubble Up" has so much zazz that you can even FEEL it! Man, that's a lot of zazz if you ask me.


..and in the final graph you can clearly see that before, zazz was proportionatly more "pure" and less "complicated". Whereas today, zazz has become increasingly "complicated" and less "pure":

This spells trouble for zazz in general I should think.

It's a dark day for zazz.

Here's Zazz's place in litirature:

http://print.google.com/print?q=zazz&hl=en

According to Cassell's Dictionary of Slang, Zazz is:
Quote:
zazz adj [1940s+](US) relating to the glamorous, fashionable world (cf ZAZZ v). [? abbr. Pizzaz]

live by the zazz, die by the zazz

zazz not, lest ye be zazzed

We were somewhere in Barstow, near the edge of the desert, when the Zazz began to kick in...

This word is definately part of Mr. Stewarts vocab...I also spotted it in his book "America (The Book): A Citizen's Guide to Democracy Inaction"

I'm pretty sure it's actually Pizzazz. Made all the worse by the woman with the giant mole on her face saying. "It's Jazzy, Pizzazzy!

No, they don't. And the way they prononunce it, they need a hyphen to attach the Pie to the Zazz, as in "Pie-Zazz". Well, actually they just pronounced it "Pizza Pizazz". And they seemed bewildered that someone would actually be interested in a t-shirt with their logo on it. Not very Zazzy at all, in my opinion.
