Boben is a generic name given to people who subconsciously make the sign of the cross 15-20 times per day. Bobens are as catholic as Jesus. They will not swear or tell the poor leper to go away. However, they will touch you when they need your attention and they will lie to get what they want. Statistics have proven that Bobens will often say phrases such as "geez", "that's stupid", and "be quiet", again, 15-20 times on a day to day basis.
"Wow that's the seventeenth time he has made the sign of the cross today. He is a real Boben!"
