Peek-a-boo
 n.— «After his appointment in the past week to chair of the nation’s accounting-industry regulator, the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board, Mr. Olson isn’t expecting similar laudatory festivities to ensue.…The accounting board was created by the 2002 Sarbanes-Oxley corporate-governance law. The birth of the agency that pundits and professionals sometimes refer to as Peek-a-boo ended decades of self-regulation for the accounting industry.» —“Accounting Cop Takes the Beat At Pivotal Time” by David Reilly Wall Street Journal June 24, 2006.
