: In Texas, an individual who talks a good game, but is suspect in terms of actually delivering on his promises is said to be "all hat, no cattle". A boastful individual without much accomplishment to show is normally the target of this expression.
: Are there similar expressions outside of Texas (in the civilized part of the Empire) that suggest the same behavior?

:: All show and no go!
