    I love translating American idioms directly into French, like "pendre dehors" (hang out).

    I'll have to ask my French friend's farmer parents how you say "all hat & no cattle".

      renders "all hat no cattle" into "tout le chapeau, aucun bétail" and then if back-translated you get "all the hat, no stock".
