Slap me some skin my blind brother

Naturally I got sucked into the full two hours of American Idol (and naturally I loved every last minute). While I loved the crying rocker, high pitched high school geek (there's one every year) and the guy with the giant Afro who sported all the latest dance moves, perhaps the highlight of the night was when Ryan Seacrest tried to high five a blind dude. 

I think Ryan was probably just testing to see if he was really blind: like that Brady Bunch episode where this old grumpy guy sues Mrs. Brady because he "says" he hurt his neck when she rear-ended him, but then Mr. Brady throws his briefcase down on the courtroom floor really loudly and the guy in the neck brace turns around all of the sudden, proving that his injury was a fake. Now we know why Ryan makes the big bucks.

Seriously? That's hilarous

(And I heard that they pay some of them to be God awful. Perhaps they are paid in $ 16,000 and various beer and meat items?)
