Wisdumb

Wisdumb is fake or stupid wisdom.

Most wisdom is in fact wisdumb. Wisdom doesn't work. Take a look at the world around you. For thousands of years, sages, gurus, holy men, sadhus, philosophers, hermits, wizards, witch doctors, shamen, mystics, gnostics and various other 'enlightened ones' have been dispensing advice about how to make the world a better place. If such advice really was effective, the world would be a better place now. But it isn't.

Some wisdumb is deliberately generated to mock the entire idea of 'wisdom'. Rhysauruses are prone to doing this. A typical example:
"Just be yourself! If you are an idiot, act like an idiot! If you a fool, act like a fool! If you are a moron, act like a moron! Don't be afraid to be what you really are! If you are a fake, be an authentic fake. Don't be a phony fake!"
