Whats this about bloomers?

Well, in the English language, sometimes there are multiple words with the same pronunciation, but different meanings. The intended meaning of "bloomers" in this context is "one who blooms," where the verb "to bloom" means to flower, flourish, or metaphorically, achieve the fruition of an endeavor.
Another meaning of "blooming" when used as an adjective is for it to be an intensifier. While this usage is chiefly British, it fit the context. Some synonyms would be "tremendous," "right," "quite."
Another, non-intended meaning, is "a lady's undergarment." I would have been a bloomin' idiot if I would have intended that meaning in any context.
