The New Four-Letter Words


In the olden days, the euphemism was “four-letter-word,” something you didn’t want your mom catch you using. Now we have something new.

I didn’t catch this switch yesterday on Wordle, but apparently, the original answer in the game was FETUS. This was a bother to some who look to compartmentalize their lives and keep politics in a separate box. I get that.

The NYT statement claimed the answer was set up long ago and wasn’t intentional. From it:

We take our role seriously as a place to entertain and escape. We want Wordle to remain distinct from the news.
