Blow Hard.

Murfin and Ray, Bedford Glossary of Critical and Literary Terms -- Jerz EL312 (Literary Criticism)

Onomatopoeia:The creation or use of words that, however we explain it, sound like what they mean or, perhaps more accurately, seem to signify meaning through sound effects. (Murfin 317)

I didn't know there was a term for this. I guess there are terms for everything, nothing is new.
