'Slap & Tickle was a zine produced between 1988 and 1994 by Jay Crasdan.

The first six issues were done on a mimeograph and a Selectric typewriter. Crasdan bought an Apple LaserWriter in 1989 and started produing Slap & Tickle using it starting with issue 7. The last issue of the 1980s, #12, was thrown to a crowd at a New Year's Eve gathering in Boston and are very rare.

Issue number 13 was released in June of 1990, though it was almost a full year before #14 was released. Issue 18 was the final issue and was given away at Crasdan's 25th Birthday party. It was produced using hectograph on pages of denim.

Each issue featured a famous song and Crasdan and friends would write articles relating to the song and his life. Issue 14 was called 'Fuck The Police' and featured an article by M Lloyd about a traffic stop where an officer felt her up.

The cover of issues 15 and 18 were done by Robert Rauschenberg. Crasdan had been a stage tech at a talk Rauschenberg gave in Boston and took the doodles he had been doing on a hotel pad of paper.
