Ok, I've found that a 'goober' is a:

1. Peanut
2. Meat of any nut
3. a Chocolate covered peanut
4. a Gob of spit
5. a booger

Anyone else ever used this term at all?

a friend of mine calls himself the "Goober King"...I want to make sure he knows what a 'goober' really is...

I call myself a Goober occasionally ... usually when i'm being a stupid clutz. It's hard to describe the exact definition I apply to it when i'm using it... but usually it's after i've done something really, really obviously stupid... and when I catch it finally I say "I'M SUCH A GOOBER!"

Don't know if that helps at all...

If your friend is a Hick, or a Country Bumpkin, then yes he may be a Goober.

*Raises an eyebrow at Cargile* *L* Being from the South....*ahem*...when WE use goober, it's either in reference to a peanut--no OTHER nut--or to a person who is being goofy, or making a general fool of himself. Sometimes 'geek' could substitute...i guess. *shrugs*

*looks at Jedi Weyoun*

Which south are you from?

I've heard it used all the time in regards to a klutzy or just a total redneck.

IIRC, JW is from Tenn.. I have lived in Arkansas and Texas, two southern states, and I never heard the term "goober". I use the phrase southern states in the sense of the Confederate nation. (I like the Confederate flag. The flag is very distinctive and unforgettable.)

Well, I've never heard the term used in everyday life in L.A., but I have seen it as the brand of a peanut butter.

Up in Cana-Duuh, it's a gob of spit, AKA a loogie.

Yes, I believe so. Or was that Gomer? No, he was on a different show, wasn't he? Pleh...

Anyway, I very rarely hear the word "goober" used, but, when I do, it's usually either a peanut, or something mildly disparaging, like what Jubee said. But, as I said, I almost never actually hear it.

There's also a song from the War of Yankee Aggression that has the refrain: peas, peas, peas, peas, eatin' goober peas/goodness how delicious eatin' goober peas!

If you are very lucky you will never hear it because it has one of those melodies you can't forget like "Tea For Two."

Being from the GEORGIA USA South, I stand firm in my Goober definition. I've seen and known enough of them.

*agrees with Cargile* It's the same here in West Texas. Only difference between here and Georgia, is there things are green, and there are hills.

The reason I have AOL IM is to talk with some buddies from Ohio's farm country. They call me that occasionally when I harrass them. It esp. refers to cow slobber!
