  • There was no serum to cure Telstra exposure. Instead, Tell the Truth Telstra had resorted to the old-fashioned medium of ear plugs.

    "Insert ear plugs to reduce the effects of Telstra lies," the instructions read. "Over exposure to these lies may lead to fits of disillusionment and monopolistic grandeur."

    It seems that in the telco world too, prevention is better than cure.
