Plates of meat = feet. Me plates are urtin.

And "eat" in this context is, I think, mainly American; I certainly haven't heard it used in the UK. But "fellate" is not the sort of wrod that normally gets turned into rhyming slang.

"Brass tacks"?

I've heard this derived as rhyming slang for "facts". The others I'm aware of are "dukes" ("Duke of York" = "fork" = "hand") for fists ("Put up your dukes") and "bread" ("bread and honey") for money.

Note that to the extent that these may have originated as rhyming slang, they aren't thought of as such by Americans, and the process isn't productive.

Then there's Omid Djalili Iranian-born Brit, who is hysterically funny on stage. He starts his act doing a very broad stereotype of Middle East types, then switches to a very proper RP delivery.

I love Omid Djalili. He seems to go in waves of being in everything I see at the cinema to being nowhere.
More info here: http://www.chortle.co.uk/comics/comics.html?http&&&www.chortle.co.uk/comi cs/odjalili.html He is currently co-starring in the new Whoopi Goldberg sitcom, which sadly does not show him off to full advantage.

Ah, that answers my "where is he these days?" then.
