A virus started in the southern United States that involves the corruption and mutation of a plain rubber band and turning it into a colorful shape. The disease first started among younger children, one or two was the norm, but it soon began to spread and multiply. Soon it had made its way into Middle Schools, particularly girls and (in some cases) boys.
As of right now, the virus has begun to spread in High school environments, infecting 15-17 (primarily) year old girls. The High school mutation of the virus is usually very aggressive, and will infest the host with upwards of 10 bands. Lately, there have been signs of Silly Bandz on High school boys as well.
There is no cure to Silly Bandz, except will power to resist their colorful appearance. Right now, Silly Bandz Syndrome (or SBS) is on the verge of being declared a pandemic.
It is currently unclassified, but is remarkably similar to the Webkinz
Disease that plagued the nations several years ago.
