When I lived in the north of the UK the expression was "all fur coat and no drawers"
: : ::::All talk and no action ---- and I like the Brooklyn language.

: It's not Brooklyn but almost the same, Hebrew, we say he is "all noise and bells", or
: In Aramic (ancient language: Istra Belagina kish kish Karia, which means, one coin in a box makes a lot of noise.

: "no bears and no woods" for something that does not exist. I went there and there were no bears and no woods. It's a bit different than empty talk, but same form.
