WTF Moment in Bible Study: Meek Moses

Moses' description of himself. Okay, if Joshua finished these passages after Moses died, this is understandable. But to read this passage with a straight face:

Numbers 12:3
(Now the man Moses was very meek, above all the men which were upon the face of the earth.)
Numbers 12:2-4 

So then, is Moses saying it was a straight face? Is he playing with us? I suspect a little bit of both. Takes a very unmeek person to say he was meek above all the men on the face of the earth.

Exodus 11:3
And the LORD gave the people favour in the sight of the Egyptians. Moreover the man Moses was very great in the land of Egypt, in the sight of Pharaoh's servants, and in the sight of the people.
Exodus 11:2-4
