California’s Prop 63 Would Ban Dumb-Ass Expressions Like “Limited Bandwidth”

Referendum would also prohibit use of “AF, “squad goals,” “let’s circle back” and (puke) “paradigm shift”

California’s new legislation has particularly strong language regarding the use of worn-out and pretentious business jargon, like “buy-in, “tee it up,” “move the needle,” and perhaps, most obnoxious of all, “limited bandwidth.”
If Prop 63 passes, using the meaningless term “run it up the flagpole” could cost you as much as $1000 in state fines.
Uttering the phrase “low-hanging fruit” will become a no-no in CA.
