An oafish dimwitted goofball from a small town, usually from the Southern or Midwestern states, but can also be found in the American Southwest , Pacific Northwest and occasionally the more rural areas of New England. Similar to a hick but with more limited cognitive abilities (as hard to swallow as that might be). Goobers can have lovable characteristics, but that’s not always set in stone.
On the movie Deliverance the guys who sodomized Ned Beatty were hillbillies, while the retard with the banjo was simply a harmless goober.

basically a goober is just a kindhearted, rather oblivious goofball. it's term of endearment really. it comes from the ancient scottish verb "to goub", which has to do with doing a dance and smiling sheepishly while doing so, exposing the goubs in one's teeth.
"That John is such a goober," said Jane as John vector-danced* his Junior Prom away.

*footnote: the vector dance involves angling one's arms to form angles and vectors and pumping them back and forth to music. basically, it's geeky as hell. but completely sexy.

A term of endearment used in place of a person's real name. It is a nickname.

A goober is a loveable goofball who is incredibly well meaning and extremely attractive.

Their good natures make them totally fun and irresistible.

A rude and abrasive person on the internet whose go-to response to any disagreement is to threaten to rape or hurt you. Cannot accurately describe what they want to do to your genitalia, due to the fact that they have never seen it before.
1. "Wow, this goober thinks it's okay to threaten rape because I don't like Halo!"
2. "Goober here says that s/he wants to stuff my urethra into her/his butthole???"
