Who is the biggest BF Blowhard

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Who is the biggest BF Blowhard

There are only two choices. I thought that was pushing the BF Comprehension Envelope, but I decide to chance it.

merlin needs an editor, but he's not really a braggart.

umd needs to dial down his batüwü griekgriek nonsense, but he's also not much of a braggart.

botto gets points for berevity. To be a blowhard, you must talk a lot.

I think Pcad is taller than Botto, and like Ty Webb, I rank athletes by height.
