Is that an attempt to brag in the context of being modest but not
really by calling it cute?

just = only = modest
&
cute = nothing significant, just looks like a precious little baby
but
result = new discovery in the history of mathematics = very
significant

Which is it - modesty or delusions of grandeur?
