Slackjaw readers and patrons of comedy, my name is Adam Dietz and I am the editor of Slackjaw’s thrice-monthly newsletter Yapjaw. Each month, I will showcase the best and brightest humor on Slackjaw in addition to some other cool stuff from equally cool spots. The temperatures are up, the stock market is down, and Jon Hamm is doing commercials for Progressive. Ahh, Lucky Strikes might not be the only thing that’s toasted, Jon.

On this week’s edition of Yapjaw, we’re talking dating profiles, classic video games, and coffee. Want the goods? Keep reading!

Back in the day, I hosted a podcast about the sitcom Home Improvement (the one with Tim Allen). We did it for a long time and some people liked it. Sometimes we still get behind the microphone for special recordings.

Letter To The Editor:

Dear Adam,

I love the taste and caffeine jolt associated with coffee but find it much too hot to drink during the summer months, what should I do?

-Trevor from Dalton, Georgia

Dear Trevor,

Unfortunately, there is no solution to this problem.
