A typical and popular approach is to use a disingenuous complaint about something, a self-deprecating statement or a comment on something completely innocuous, as a vehicle to deliver the real message, which invariably shows the person in a favourable light. In fact it shows what Slapdick they are.
Stayin humble. Always grateful. "Good things come to those who wait." Lovin my new whip. #HardWorkPaysOff

Humblebrag

When you use a small complaint to really flatter yourself with major compliments
Gloria: "I was trying to save a drowning child but my GIANT boobs are just so huge that they fall out of my bathing suit and got in the way of my life saving efforts."

Me: "Poor baby! You and your GIANT boobs got in the way of saving a kid. What a great humblebrag."
