SAAS Bulletin: falling on my head like a new emotion. Sometimes you have to wonder if people set up scenarios deliberately in order to create delicious puns. In this case, suspicion must rest upon the hapless events organiser who set up a halogen light on a stage at Sydney's Overseas Passenger Terminal in Circular Quay, where Telstra boss Sol Trujillo was conducting a massive presentation to spruik the T3 share offer. The halogen set off the building's sprinkler system, which drenched Sol – and the first three rows of assembled analysts and journalists – with water.

Here are some of the ensuing headlines:

"Rain on Sol's parade" – Sydney Morning Herald
"Telstra launch turns big pond" – The Age
"Sprinkler fails to dampen Trujillo" – The Australian

My favourite is the "big pond" reference. Perhaps Sol wishes he could "1800 Reverse" the mishap. Or look up assistance in the "Wet Pages".

Oy, I can't believe that's all I had.
