First, i think bokeh is a silly word and i personally never use it!

Can we just make this easy and say bokeh is a TYPE of blur caused by a camera lens' ability to render out of focus areas (DOF)?

Kinda like.. Fuzz or overdrive is a type of 'distortion' coming from a guitar amp.

Not bad.  Mine is very direct

Bokeh is that part of a photo that is outside the confines of the dof.  So simple. same for everyone everywhere at all times, no debates, no misunderstandings, no silly, artsy definitions that SOUND as cool as the word.

Whether you like that part of the photo is completely subjective.
