What's a Goober?
Often, after reading a joke on my site or in one of my humor lists, people e-mail me and ask, "Pastor Tim, what's a Goober?"
To satisfy many people's curiosity, I've included a picture of one here. Yes, you guessed it - that's me (well a much younger me at this point.)
We've all been Goobers at one point or another in our lives by doing things that looked like we had disconnected from whatever intelligence we possess.
Goober is a term that I substitute into jokes that feature blondes, terms of ethnicity, and the like. That way we can laugh without having to risk hurting someone.
Contrary to what some have accused, my using the term Goober is not a slur against people lacking in intelligence. It's just a way to laugh at ourselves and the silly things we sometimes do (even though some goober jokes feature things so stupid nobody would do them.)
So when you see Goober in a joke have a laugh - maybe even at yourself.

Hi. I'm Pastor Tim Davis - a real life pastor of a real life church.
In September of 1998, I innocently started an e-mail list for sending jokes to my family and friends. Somehow other people began to find my list and join online.
I thought that was pretty cool so I started to try to grow my list. Eventually it (and other lists I started) grew to point where they began to generate enough e-mail traffic to make some internet providers wonder if I was a spammer. Of course I'm not.
My pledge to you (whether you are an internet provider or a potential subscriber) is that I will not sell, trade, or giveaway the addresses of my subscribers to anyone. Furthermore, I do not add anyone to my e-mail lists unless they have first requested to be added. I also have a confirmation system in place to confirm their requests also. I even personally handle mail sent to me asking for help to be removed from my lists.
