I'm curious ...

Why is throwing a party for a group of blind people a way to measure inner 

I put together parties for blind people and sighted people all the time. I 
want to win money or whatever. Actually, it sounds like a rather boring 
reality TV show. Hurray, women who are hosting a party for the blind. How 
thrilling. And why does it have to be a woman, I assume by the word "diva."

How are they being judged? Who can carry the most drinks to the most blind 
people sitting on the couch? Or, who can guide the most blind people to the 
bathroom? Oh I know, what kind of games can they come up with for the poor 
blind people to play?
