Ligma started as a simple joke, a play on words for ‘lick my’, where when someone asks, what is ligma, the appropriate response is, ligma balls. Yep, ligma is nothing but a *** joke. And so, a viral internet meme was born. But what if ligma wasn’t just an internet meme, what if ligma was a real disease?

Some say the Ligma disease is contagious but indeed the fake news of the disease is contagious. The disease has been spreading through the internet. So if it was real then WHO and other medical organization would have quickly responded to such news. They would have warned the people and would have told us the prevention steps from this deadly disease. They would have gathered some scientists and medical experts in après conference, inform the media, and all the things were done that were executed when ebola and sars outbreak. If it was real that Ligma is contagious to Fortnite players then this would have been shut down completely.
Popular streaming site twitch would have been banned and all the popular Fortnite game streamers would be tested in a lab if they are also suffering from this disease or not. People with blue hair all around the world would have been shunned and taken to the secret government facility. And anyone who would try to play Fortnite would be banished from the society. Lots of medical researchers would have given their views about the conditions and some might have come with the possible sure and vaccines. Celebrities would have done campaigning for the awareness of the disease and whatnot.
