tall cute italian who likes to think that he is semi-fluent in spanish and, at times, uses it in a "ghetto" dialect. goobers are notorious for their need to be taken care of by their swipers. Many are known to be execssive movie "buffs" and are, suprisingly, romantics at heart.
Did that dude really just hit that tree?....yah, he's definitely a goober. I sure hope he has a swiper to take care of him!

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.
