 From a recent column about a legendary Boston politician:

<Freddie’s greatest moment came during his Parkman House hearings, when
he exposed Mayor White’s profligate spending at his palatial home away
from home.
“Who ate at the Parkman House?” Freddie thundered, his unlit cigar
clenched in his teeth. “H-W-O-H - who?”>
