If you're reading the Harry Potter books, or on a website in the fandom, then Ravenclaw is a house in Hogwarts.

The attributes of Ravenclaw are knowledge and wit. The house colours are blue and bronze. The founder is Rowena Ravenclaw, and the head of house is Flitwick.

However, if you're a Detentionee, it means the sexiest house. Much sexier than you.
You see those Ravenclaws over there? Yeah. They're sexier than us, aren't they?

The Hogwarts house for smarty-smarts in Harry Potter.
Most people who read Harry Potter think they belong in Ravenclaw. Why? Well, come on... alot of nerds (such as myself) read Harry Potter, and nerds are usually, smart, and Ravenclaw is for the brainy ones, so... :D

P.S.- If the above made no sense, you belong in Hufflepuff. =
