After extensive exhaustive research (Wikipedia), I have determined that only the coconuts song is rooted in the English musical scene.  The bananas song is definitely American in origin, Tin Pan Alley.  Well, they SHOULD have been performed together!

And here I thought I was probably the only one on EET who remembers BOTH of those songs fondly, as I learned them as a young child.  I still remember them now as an extremely old child....  I am reminded of the "bananas" one (along with the original Chiquita jingle) every day: the VP/Engineering drops off a large bunch just about every morning (for the "code monkeys" that surround my cubicle. I presume) on top of the wall of my cube.  That takes care of the Chiquita one; on the days he is out of the office, it's "Yes, we have no bananas...."

I'm not surprised about you folks remembering the "no bananas" one.  Since you as a group are predominately Brits or at least ex-pats from other parts of the Commonwealth, and the songs are as I recall from an English musical, the connection is patent.

@Antedeluvian: The malady lingers on...

Of course, there's always the classic tale of life in the south during the American Civil War -- "Departed with Flatulence" (or words to that effect)

@David: ...so how do we know your trip to Brazil is not faked, like the moon landings??  :-)

Would a picture of me in a thong convince you? LOL

@Antedeluvian: You could sing "I've got a lovely bunch of coconuts" and accompany it with the theremin and ukelele.

Or I could sing "Yes, we have no bananas..."

@ Max

If only I had a coconut for every time I've heard that one

Now you have two coconuts. Soon you'll have a coconut grove or at the very least a side-show at a local fair. You could sing "I've got a lovely bunch of coconuts" and accompany it with the theremin and ukelele.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
