NPR Sunday Puzzle (Mar. 12): S before B, makes it a plural

NPR Sunday Puzzle (Mar. 12): S before B, makes it a plural
Q: What eight-letter noun -- containing the letter 'B' -- is pluralized by inserting an 'S' immediately before the 'B'?
I figured the answer had to be something like 'mothers-in-law' where the plural goes inside the word. I didn't think too long before the answer came along. I'll tell you after the deadline passes.
Edit: And along comes the answer... since the deadline has passed. There were a couple clues there.
A: PASSERBY --> PASSERSBY
