Ask Dayton 29 – Explicit Rating Earned
Dear Dayton: Nick reads your responses like a trained monkey. Ever thought about giving him a hard time, by making him say something that would make even a sailor blush? Come on Dayton, you know you want to. I can’t wait to hear what you’ll make him say next!
Uggo was my hero.
You know, we’ve seen our share of wacky questions here at the G&T show. While we’ve seen everything from serious questions about writing to pretty goofy queries about such silly things as “Ginger vs. Mary Ann” or “Pie vs. Cake,” and while some of my responses have been….I guess we’ll call them colorful…I don’t think we’ve ever had a request for me to purposely be crude or even vulgar with my answers. Though my language can be salty from time to time, I don’t typically set out to shock people with my writing, and do my best to refrain from anything truly obscene.
A long time ago, the late, great George Carlin warned us about the so-called “seven words you can’t say on television.” Of course, times have changed and you can now hear a couple of those used on some modern-day shows. It’d be so easy for me to craft an answer to this question that makes Nick have to say any of those words, along with some of the unique, contemporary variations like “Titty Sprinkles” or “Twat Waffle” or “Ass to Mouth,” or even some of the show-specific slang I’ve brought in on occasion; you know, like a fuck-ton being fifty shit-barrels more than an ass-load, and all that. I could do that, but where’s the sport in that sort of thing? Even though I’m sure Nick’s heard it all before, that doesn’t mean I know for sure that he’s big on that kind of language. Besides, just using profanity for cussing’s sake doesn’t indicate any real imagination or creativity, for fuck’s sake.
There’s also the fact that I don’t know who might be listening to the G&T Show, and will it does earn an explicit rating on occasion—okay, every week—I certainly don’t want to be the reason someone actually lodges a formal complaint against Livestream, Trek Radio, any of the venues which host downloadable copies of past shows, or the show’s website host. So, with that in mind, I do my best to temper my response to each new question, and when I do drift into the more ribald side of things, I endeavor to keep it within the realm of humor.
Of course, if anyone is so tightly wrapped that they have to go to that kind of trouble, then fuck ‘em with a bat’leth sideways.
But, wait. There’s more.

He plays well with others and is always on the look out for the next project, the next thing, the next next. If he wasn’t working on something with a half dozen other projects waiting in the wings, somebody please check to make sure he’s still breathing.
During the day, he’s a mild-mannered computer repair man who dabbles in web design in his small, rural, Central California community. He lives with his lovingly dysfunctional family and loyal canine companion and spends most of his time in the closet concocting some hair-brained scheme or another. He’s got an unhealthy obsession with Lego video games, Klingons, and Star Trek Online that borders on the neurotic.
Despite all this, he still finds the time to write the words. Find out what he's doing here.
