Alfie Dog or buy one of my books and what's more you jolly well should!
Er, sorry about that. I was just demonstrating what it's like to be bumptious. It means to be annoyingly confident and self-important. I'm not really like that am I, at least not all the time?
I know, we'll put it to a vote (that couldn't possibly go wrong, could it?) Is the picture appropriate because -
A) I'm looking jolly smug as I'd just won a poetry competition (which was ages ago and yes I'm still going on about it) or
B) Because of the location?
If you were to win a competition like this one, with its $5,000 grand prize I think you'd be entitled to be bumptious for a little while. Or maybe you'd like to try this one? No cash prize, but pretty good bragging rights.
