Dialect spoken by many Luzon-based Filipinos. Tagalog is generally regarded as the lingua franca among Filipinos at home and abroad, but there are several other dialects spoken across the archipelago, and there is some sensitivity about treating Tagalog as definitively "Filipino."

Also refers to the ethnicity of Tagalog-speaking natives. One theorized origin of the word is "taga-ilog," meaning "from the river."
The Tagalogs speak Tagalog.

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.

A language native to the southern part of the island of Luzon in the Philippines. The Tagalog language is the main base language for the one of the official languages of the Philippines, Filipino (the other official language is English). The language, like most of the languages of the Philippines, is related to Malaysian, Indonesian, Hawaiian, Tongan, Somoan, some southern Taiwanese languages, and many more that are included in the Austronesian group of languages. The language has about 18 million native speakers. Tagalog can also refer to the Tagalog people.
