Phil Robertson's wisdom

Thanks to reality TV, we are blessed with a surfeit of really wise people! Gurus who graciously educate us on matters too difficult to contemplate on our own.

"In this case you have to convert them, which I think would be next to impossible," Phil told Sean Hannity. "I'm not giving up on them, I'm just saying convert them or kill them. One or the other."

Phil was on FoxNews to plug his new tome, the cleverly titled UnPHILtered.

"'Kneel at his feet or get crushed by his boot.' My honor to become ... #BlackAdam #TheAntiHero #DCComics," he tweeted Wednesday.

Kim Kardashian opines

The celeb nude-photo hacking scandal might help make us all as wise as Kim Kardashian.

"I think it's a wake-up call for people to make sure they have every privacy setting," KK tells BBC Radio. "It seems like there are a lot of people that love to spend their time hacking people's information and that's just a scary thing."
