NIGHT OF THE JEFFS

The day humanity discovered Blalock Syndrome in earnest was a grim one indeed.

Incidents of the malady had first been reported a few weeks after the death of the notorious serial killer Jeffery Woods, better known as Jeff the Killer.
The disease, which was contracted through unknown means, gradually made the afflicted person resemble the late murderer; turning their skin ghostly white, making black rings appear around their eyes, having the lips split into a ghastly Chelsea grin, making the hair grow long, greasy, and stringy.
The first victim was a college student named Jack Ernstwhistle, who allegedly killed three people and shortly thereafter vanished, never to be seen again. Other cases followed, including an ex-televangelist, a genetics engineer, the CEO of a soup company, a volunteer at a food bank, and construction workers.
For a long time the idea of a disease that could turn ordinary people into hideous, violent maniacs was at first brushed off as a silly rumor, or perhaps mass hysteria.

The incident on July 12th three years later, appropriately known as "Night of The Jeffs," proved that it was no laughing matter.

At the SlushCo Stadium in [CITY AND STATE REDACTED], one of the biggest and most-anticipated business seminars in decades was going to take place. Friday Bendermann, the beloved writer of self-help books, philanthropist, and public speaker, was going to give one last speech before retiring. Over 30,000 people were in attendance of the historic event. It was a full house.
Free lemonade was provided for the parched patrons. A few people remarked that the lemon tasted "a little bitter" but it was otherwise fine.

Friday finally came on stage, and was greeted by thunderous applause. And after the applause died down and he approached the podium...all known footage of the seminar ceases. Even the live web feeds mysteriously turned off. No one knows exactly what transpired in the SlushCo Stadium during those four hours.

But whatever events transpired, shortly after the allotted time for the seminar, the patrons poured out of the arena. Only they were...different.
They all had snow-white skin.
Bloodshot, crazed eyes with thick black rings around them.
Long, black, stringy hair.
Horrible, split lips that formed Glasgow grins.
Black fingernails.
Crimson lips.
They...they were all Jeff.

Sickly green fluid dribbling from their mouths, they screamed and laughed hysterically as they went on a rampage around the city, gleefully killing and destroying everything they could get their deformed hands on. The police tried to stop them, but there were simply too many of the Jeffs to handle. By sunrise, the city was in shambles.

The entire city was put under quarantine, and cut off from the rest of the world. No one was allowed in or out, besides supply delivery trucks and the disease control experts investigating the catastrophe. There could be no risk of Blalock Syndrome spreading further.

The threat seemed to be utterly contained.

But then a small, seemingly harmless white lizard snuck onto one of the food trucks leaving the city...

(NO, THIS ISN'T A CREEPYPASTA. IT'S JUST ANOTHER BIT OF "LORE" IN THE SCI-FI ORIENTED WORM JEFF SAGA, LIKE THE SIDE-STORIES. IT'S NOT REALLY MEANT TO BE SCARY. IT'S MEANT TO SHOW HOW POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS WORM JEFF'S INFLUENCE CAN BE.)

Yes, Wormy's finally figured out how to transform multiple humans at once. WE'RE DOOMED.:nuu:
(Thankfully, this experiment turned out to be unreproducible. SlushCo Stadium had unique auditory properties which allowed all 30,000 people to hear Wormy's mind-control message at once, and it was destroyed in the following riot.)

The other stories describe the Worm Jeff mythos it ACTUALLY is, this one describes it as the "outside" world sees the infectees; a terrifying disease with an unknown vector that seems to have some vague connection to Jeff the Killer (you and I know what it is, of course, but the majority of the people in-universe don't.)

And yes, I named "Blalock Syndrome" (in reality Worm Jeff infection) after JtK's alternate last name.
