I confess, never had Kim down as a deep thinker

Something has gone to Kim Kardashian's head. And it's the German philosopher, Friedrich Nietzsche.

If you're unfamiliar with the works of Nietzsche, then let me explain to you: so am I.

True, I've delved into his oeuvre. But I'm unqualified to write on the subject, particularly as it always takes me five attempts to spell his name properly.

Is it the z, then the s, then the t? I bet he never got it right himself half the time.

Kim is a pop singer, reality star or actress - bound to be one of three, surely - and she's reading Mr N to impress boyfriend Kanye West, a rapper and fashion designer.

Kanye says Neechie (sod it, I'm fed up trying to spell it) is a huge inspiration. He is thought in particular to admire his moustache. Neechie wrote about the Apollonian and Dionysian dichotomy, and that's as much as I'm willing to copy out of Wikipedia for your benefit.

I do know, however, that he also wrote about superman, though he didn't do the illustrations.

What Kim makes of this is anybody's guess. I'd always had her down as a nihilist. But I've nothing to base that on.

And, as Immanuel Kant noted, just because a gal's got big hooters doesn't mean she has a tiny brain.
