I don't know about you, but I've read a few of those "Guess what...Microsoft made me an MVP" blogs and they always seem a little...well...not really British, if the Brits among you know what I mean.   They are not really aligned to our world-famous national pastime of studied understatement.   A bit too brash and forward for my taste.   Even slightly smug.   Of course, when it happens to a Brit, they are as flattered, conceited and unbearably proud as the next person, and don't pass up any opportunity to make sure that everyone knows...in a modest, understated sort of way, of course.

Guess what...Microsoft made me an MVP!   Thanks guys.

You mean you've never taken me seriously before? Now that seriously deflates my over-bloated ego. Not so 'Mr Smug' now.

(It doesn't flash)

What did they make you MVP for ?

If you don't mention it, we will all assume it's for Flight Simulator ...

Rumour on the street is that I am yet another MVP for MS Paint.

This I can deny! I've joined the ranks of BizTalk MVPs.

You can be Mr. Smug. MVP or not, I still have half a dozen of your previous posts bookmarked for regular reference!

Congratulations mate.

Wasn't there a movie called M.V.P. ?

Er, yes. 'Most Valuable Primate'! I deny the rumours that I'm an MVP for MS Bananas for Windows.

Nice one!

We need more Brits 'on-tour' out in the BTS world.

Crack on!

See you in the Ashes
