"Received a Banana"
I was trying to explain to a sales guy that when we asked what to do on failure, we did not mean that we received a "No" from the api, as in he could not sell, where a "Yes" would be success, but that we considered both "Yes" and "No" success, and we considered silence (api down), or "Banana" (unexpected garbage) as failure.
There are four answers to a yes/no question.
Yes, No, Silence, Banana
Thus our it/networking team starting using the phrase "Got a Banana" whenever the incoming response made no sense.
