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

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.
