First Human to Human Transmission?

Experts gathered in Edmonton today to pore over the remains of a hockey game , and determine if the first instance of human to human transmission of Senator's Disease has taken place.

Senator's Disease is a syndrome in which victims develop a seasonal allergy to winning. The onset of the disease is typically early to mid-May each year. Symptoms usually include loss of coordination, listlessness and an inability to score goals. Senator's Disease has previously only been found in a very localized population centred around Scotiabank Place.

Tests will be conducted over the weekend at a facility in California to determine if, in fact, the Edmonton outbreak is authentic Senator's Disease.
