I'm so sorry for not going to ESC Brasil. I'm wearing my sad face right now.

I firmly know that there will be some outstandings conferences and tutorials, just as I am sure this was the case for the EE Live! show. too.

But be sure, Max, your performance will be stared amd registered.... and the non.attendants will be ready for laughing & praisisng as soon as release depending on the subject coverage ;-)

Unfornuately I can't make ESC Brazil, unless someone wants to send me a ticket (with a side trip to the Iguazu Falls, please! Might as well get to another on my bucket list.).

Max, I would like a picture of you in an AFDB so I can see if you look as handsome as I do (nay, as we all do) in your photo. That's me on the extreme right, for comparison purposes.

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.

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

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.

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!

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)

I just got back from a fairly exotic store where they have a section of everything bacon- chewing gum, toothpicks flavoured with bacon all the way through to an alcohol shaker with the words: "what's shakin', bacon?" emblazoned on the side. I immediately thought of you.

Did you see the email I sent you about Bar Brutus, the all bacon restaurant in Montreal?

@Antedeluvian....it seems Bar Brutus is not yet open, so Max'll have to wait, but the article also points to Bacon Nation which is in Toronto, aren't you there or near there?  If that's true, you should expect a visit from Max soon :-)

PS just saw they offer Bacon-wrapped deep-fried Mars Bars.... mmmmmm

@David Ashton ...Bacon Nation which is in Toronto...

Bacon in Canada is not the same as bacon in the United States. Bacon in Canada is also not what the US calls Canadian Bacon. According to Wikipedia, the English speaking world can't agree on what part of a pig is bacon.

Well, since you brought up aluminum foil hats, I thought you might like to see Wierd Al's parody if you haven't already. You might ask him if it would be OK to use in your presentation as well. <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w-0TEJMJOhk> Hope you're not too paranoid.

I have seen this video -- it's very clever -- but you really have to watch it all the way through to the very last seconds to get the full effect.

Ack, looked back and saw I had pointed you to that a while ago. As they say, the mind is always the first to go (I think). Anyway, it would make a great addition to your presentation if you could get Weird Al to agree.
