In M for messy, the colour of the moon was discussed. Noel fielding on hearing it is dark grey or graphite mentioned that there is no grey cheese. Stephen thought about this for a moment and then agreed. I thought he was going to say Cornish Yarg, which is of course a modern cheese named Grey spelt backwards. So next time Noel is on the show, can he have points deducted??

Yarg = grey spelled backwards? Yeah. Right.

Yarg cheese really is so called because its name is Gray backwards.

It is made only at one farm in Cornwall, and the recipe is based on one which a Mr Alan Gray found in a four hundred year old book.

The cheese is not grey; it's, well, cheese coloured. But while it may not be grey cheese it is in a sense Gray cheese, and so I'm inclined to agree with Barryscouser that Mr Fielding deserved a forfeit.
