n. a phrase used by lawyer to make it seem as if somebody didn't do something wrong when they really did.
Lawyer: Yes, your Honor, my clients may have created fake financial records for Enron, but they were not a proximate cause of harm to Enron shareholders because Enron was going to implode anyways.

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.
