Goof

Goof | Slang | This is what to never call someone in the DTES, unless of course you want to fight someone. Originally a jail term, goof stands for “good only on Fridays”, which happens to be the day when prisoners receive their mail, and hence, cigarettes, which made them of value, albeit temporarily.

Usage | “Whaddya lookin’ at? You wanna go, ya fuckin’ goof?”explore-the-lexicon
