‘Celeb,’ ‘Eatery,’ and Other Words The New York Times Magazine Doesn’t Use

  • SHARES

There are certain words that people just cannot tolerate. For example, FishbowlNY doesn’t like “moist.” Something about it just grosses us out. Today¬†Hugo Lindgren sheds some light on the words that the previous editor at the New York Times Magazine banned, and as he notes, it’s still relevant.

A sample of the prohibited words:

  • zeitgeist
  • staffer
  • hubby
  • celeb
  • duo
  • indie
  • bistro

We’re trying not to take offense to that last one.
