From Webster's 1828 dictionary:

GASTRILOQUIST (n.)
An old-fashioned word for a ventriloquist, or as Webster explains, "one who so modified his voice that it seems to come from another person or place."

I always thought that a gastriloquist was someone who could fart in a crowd and then successfully have everyone believing it was someone else.
You know the type.

P.S. No, it wasn't me. :-0

As a writer and a lover of the language, I love new and unusual words. This is a great one. Thanks you, Silvercup.
