How does one spot a blowhard? Besides the non-stop pontificating, there are some telltale signs. First, a blowhard never listens. Second, a blowhard is never wrong. Third, a blowhard knows everything.

Among average people, blowhards are not very popular. They walk into a party and the whole room murmurs, "Aw jeez, who invited him?""
