Nov 27 Word of the Day
A stupid person; it refers to the lack of surface area on an individual's brain. The general thought is that the more surface area (wrinkles, creases, etc.) a brain has, the smarter the person is. Conversely, a person with a smooth brain (no wrinkles) has less surface area and would therefore be stupid.
That fucking smooth brain put his shirt on backwards again...

That smooth brain is dumber than a pile of shit.

An incredibly talented person who dedicates the time and hard work to creating a beautiful work of art, be it a sculpture, music, literature, or a painting.

This person has dedicated years of work to mastering his craft, and deserve as much credit as any other professional in a field. They generally have a higher level of creativity and imagination.

Contrary to stereotypical belief, they do not have to forego an education or be on drugs to be an artist.
Lynda marveled at the sculptors skill as she gazed at the realistic deer, soldered out of pieces of scrap metal.

Dr. Smith was quite surprised and blushed when he realized that the artist he had been talking down to was also a doctor.

Ralph, an aspiring artist, worked long and hard on his painting and was proud of the result.

artist (ar-tist)
1. Most common definition, a depressed, underpaid, sad person in their early twenties or late teens, although they can be many ages. They cannot afford art supplies, cry themselves to sleep, lack inspiration, and draw about once every 3 full moons. When asked what they want to be, they answer an artist, but they know that like everything else in their miserable lives, that is a lie. They hate their art style although their friends love it, and have no self confidence whatsoever.
2. Anyone who practices a talent involving creating something without outstanding functionality other than to entertain or inspire.

3. Sarcasm used to describe someone lacking skills in art.
1."I am an artist!"
"But you never draw?"
"I know..." (cries in corner)
2. Poets, authors, and dancers deserve the title of artist.
3. "That two year old is a real artist, proper Picasso! Smeared paint all over my new Lamborghini!"
