The name itself suggests a ventriloquist, a person who pretends to be someone else.
The oldest ventriloquist is in fact a “possessed man,” according to the National Enquirer, which claims a man in the 1800s in Massachusetts had a set of ventriloquists pretending to be the Duke of Wellington. They were, the book claims, responsible for a storm that left five dead, including two babies in a tub.
In 2006, “The Daily Show” correspondent Chris Darden and his co-anchor Stephen Colbert made their own version of the claim: The “Duke of Wellington” episode.

As Costa continues to go after Smith, Smith’s attorneys say they are being contacted by the Florida Highway Patrol about their client’s case. Smith’s attorneys, however, insist that they have no connection to such a matter.
