The Book Of Jezebel: Z Is For Zits

Illustration for article titled The Book Of Jezebel: Z Is For Zits

This week we welcomed our first book, a 300-page, hardcover, illustrated encyclopedia called The Book of Jezebel. In honor of this milestone —which took many years and dozens of contributors to execute—we've been posting one entry from the book a day, starting with "A" and continuing on through to "Z." As always, questions, additions, annotations and suggestions on the entries that appear online are welcomed and encouraged.

Zits

1. Acne. 2. Device in the classic, oh-my-fucking-God, how-did-no-adult-ever-stop-me-from-playing-this-with-all-my-friends-at-age-nine, it-is-so-hilariously-deeply-misogynist teen parlor game Girl Talk, wherein a player would be forced to place a small red dot sticker on her face in order to register her lack of worth as a romantic partner, creative talent, or friend.
