[The Big Idea] Andrew Marr interviews Noam Chomsky (480p) - YouTube
Here's a story from the Bunyoro kingdom, in East Africa:

Once a man moved into a new village. He wanted to find out what his neighbors were like, so in the middle of the night he pretended to beat his wife very severely, to see if the neighbors would come and remonstrate with him. But he did not really beat her; instead he beat a goatskin, while his wife screamed and cried out that he was killing her. Nobody came, and the very next day the man and his wife packed up and left that village and went to find some other place to live.

The Book of the Eskimo describes how in Greenland, one could tell what a fine delicacy someone had to offer his guests by how much he belittled it beforehand:

The old man laughed. "Some people do not know much. I am such a poor hunter and my wife a terrible cook who ruins everything. I do not have much, but I think there is a piece of meat outside. It might still be there as the dogs have refused it several times."
This was such a recommendation in the Eskimo way of backwards bragging that everyone's mouths began to water ...
