It's Canadian slang used to indicate something is broken :D

Although some might consider wikipedia a better reference source it seems to be relatively accurate.

Usually the debate is whether bokeh is specular highlights, like those in yeshwanth's pic, or the degree of smoothness in out of focus areas such as displayed in the other pics.

The last three I posted were taken with 5Dm1 with 85/1.2ii. Here's some more bokeh goodness with the same set up.
