    Or the Canadian version - BOK-EH?

    "Bokeh" comes from the Greek word "boukali" that means "bottle" and, as elekm correctly put it, the effect that sharp images usually produce on film in the cameras that are held by drunken photographers. Or, the result on the film that someone obtains when he exchanges his/her Planar by a cheaper lens made out of a cut Bottle Bottom End (the cut BBE's are what has remained from the bottles used by Blues Guitar players for the "sliding guitar effect" (SGE) so proudly produced in the Southern Regions of the USA...)

    Alright. Let me finish my drink, and I'll go creative on my way home with the empty bottle!

    I'm sure that an empty Sake bottle will help you get creative (at least for a few hours after consuming its content)...

    So, with German lens you get beer bokeh, with Japanese lens you get sake bokeh.

    Considering that Schneider makes their lenses in Bad Kreuznach, you could hope to get Trockenbeerenauslesebokeh. But I'm afraid Rodenstock is irredeemably beerish.

    How about Soju liquor? Does it make you creative?

    That liquor totally knocked me out in the restroom in a bar once and I couldn't make it home that night. I was pretty artistic with myself on the floor.

    I think that I have an old bottle of Trockenbeerenauslese in my basement, Ole... I could invite anyone who can pronounce it for a party in my place to empty it, but I guess that it won't be very crowded...
