Taking a stand for a Nosh

The Facebook groups inspired by Giles ‘porn’Coren come thick and fast, if you’ll pardon the expression.
In the wake of his now infamous email attack on Times’ subs for allegedly ruining a joke in one of his restaurant reviews, a group has been set up called Support Giles Coren’s Stand for A Nosh.

So far it has only five members, including founder Geoff Baker, former PR man for Sir Paul McCartney.
For those readers who have led a sheltered life, ‘a nosh’is slang for ‘a blow job”, whereas ‘nosh’is Yiddish for ‘food”.

As Baker is a famously strict vegetarian, one is unable to say which use of the word ‘nosh’fascinated him the most, but he clearly enjoyed Coren’s spat with the subs.
