Pawn bokeh

Is this the funniest joke on Flickr?! Well, probably not but it made me smile when I thought of it at 3am. But first you need to be old enough to know what a pawnbroker was. Then you need to know that in chess this piece is called a pawn. And finally you need to know that bokeh in photography is the term for that blurred background. God, I wish I hadn't bothered now!
