Spoff (boffin, swat etc)- a derogitory term that people (midlands, england) use for others more intelligent than themselves. A spoff is suposed to be the one who asks for extra homework and revises for 2 hours for a maths quiz, however, many people innocent of spoffiness are accused of this merely because they are naturally intelligent.
