n.— «After the first couple of times I heard the term “goumada” used on the HBO Mafia show “The Sopranos” several years ago, I almost immediately started hearing it all the time at the Statehouse. Folks in that building had been gossiping about who is zooming whom around there from time immemorial, but now they had a new word for it, one with exotic mob overtones, no less. It was an instant hit: “Did’ya hear So-and-so got his goumada a job in Whatshisname’s office?”» —“With any luck, Guy Dufault could be his own best client” by Jim Baron The Call (Woonsocket, R.I.) Nov. 14, 2005.
