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.

This is not to discount the other meanings, but here's one that's been overlooked, it seems:
Noun:
1) The act of fixing or building something by tinkering, prodding, poking, and twiddling it until it looks the way it should or does what it ought to do. The act of solving a problem in a very make-shift, seat-of-the-pants way rather than proceeding with any sort of plan or forethought. Jiggery-pokery is all about "Good enough"
2) A very informal, vague process for doing a thing - there's no step-by-step thing you do to get the result you want, you just apply the jiggery-pokery until it starts making the noise and doing the thing

Possibly, this comes from literally "jiggering" (jiggling) and "pokering" (poking) a thing until it comes together or starts to work or both.
1) I just used a bit of jiggery-pokery and I got your phone working again; I majored in jiggery-pokery in college, I did.
2) Careful with the coffee machine - you need a bit of jiggery-pokery to get it working.
