Letter from a Reader About Our Usage of the Words: Wayne Fucking Newton

Today we received an interesting email from a reader of VegasTripping who had some comments about our semantic choices re: Wayne Fucking Newton. We've received numerous emails about this, and would like to take a moment to officially address the use of Wayne Fucking Newton on VegasTripping.

I must say, please clean up your language my friend! Wayne Newton is a Las Vegas icon, treat him with respect!

Our response:

Trudy,

Thank you very much for contacting VegasTripping! We rely on our readers to help keep VegasTripping as accurate, independent and up-to-date as possible. We truly value your input and do our best to incorporate user feedback onto our site.

With regards to your comment about VegasTripping's use of "Fucking" between Wayne Newton's first and last name, we do not feel that the use of the word "Fucking" implies any disrespect to Wayne Newton. In fact, we consider this use of the F-Bomb to underscore the heroic aspects of Wayne's career, talent and contributions to the U.S.O..

In the English language, no other word demands attention in the same way that "Fuck" - and its many permutations: "Fucker" "Fucking" "Fuck" "Mother Fucker" "Fucking A" - do. The use of "Fucking" does not preclude derision, but instead generates a command presence of respect for a man who has single handedly defined the Las Vegas Experience for millions upon millions of visitors for the last 40 years.

It is incorrect to assume that VegasTripping disrespects Wayne Fucking Newton by including the F-Bomb in his title. As many of our readers will attest (we get emails from readers addressing him by WFN all the time) the title of Wayne Fucking Newton is one of strength, character and freedom. Wayne Fucking Newton personifies, in its most distilled form, the guiding light of our democracy that we have all come to call "The American Way."

Thank you again for contacting us, we hope that this clarifies our position and lightens your perception that we are disrespecting Wayne Fucking Newton - Mr. Las Vegas.

Sincerely,

VegasTripping Posse

Comments & Discussion:

I think my favorite line from "Vegas Vacation" is appropriate here:

"Holy shit, Wayne Newton's hitting on Mom!"

Wayne Newton is a dweeb. I'd poke a hole in him if I could.

kudos to the vegastripping posse on their reply
