: Who started the phrase "What a revolting development that is"?

It's a catch phrase of the character Chester A Riley from "The Life of Riley" - a radio show from 1944-1951 and a tv show from 1949-1950 and 1953-1958. The radio series and the second tv series starred William Bendix as Chester Riley.
