The odd sensation you get when you see or hear someone that says or does something extremely awkward or embarrassing. The sensation comes on in a fashion similar to the onset of goose bumps, hence the name. Also known as retard tingles.
When we were in high school, based on a loophole, we all took chorus for credit in our senior year. The teachers were so upset that when we took advantage of this never-used loophole that they punished us by making us do group voice lessons. At the lessons, each one of us had to sing multiple notes, by ourselves, in front of the rest of the group. Watching a bunch of hockey/football players do this was as awkward as it gets. Needless to say, everyone listening got dork bumps.
