Sympathy for the Reaper

Today, I became concerned that our dear chum the NodeReaper has an extremely limited diet. Even if all he ever expresses a preference for are cherry pies (what, is he a Ratt fan?), it's kind of sad that he hasn't expanded his horizons beyond them. Even confining our horizons to the dessert milieu, he might try cheesecake (or is that Chesse?cake), or a nice flan, or maybe just some good old fashioned ice cream (I like vanilla or chocolate with finely-ground coffee beans.

Should we convince this most valued member of the community to expand his gustatory adventures beyond the realm of the sweet, we might suggest a nice linguine al pesto, perhaps, or perhaps a fine plate of General T'so's chicken (so long as the good general won't go hungry).

At least treat he could treat himself to a nice espresso macchiato once in a while ... although not too much, we wouldn't want his scythe hand to get shaky.

    I'll let you in on a little secret. Our emaciated friend doesn't actually eat all those cherry pies, he just likes to bake. In fact, he rarely misses an episode of Martha Stewart or the Two Fat Ladies, and don't get him started on Iron Chef. When not at work reaping nodes or baking pies, he usually keeps busy touching up the decor around here with his uniquely gothic yet heartwarming style that just screams "home, sweet home".

      Could be a Ratt fan, doncha think? Doesn't he go 'round and 'round?

    I wouldn't call his(?) diet that limited: I've seen all sorts of nodes get devored. I've even seen him eat some recalcitrant users. Still, there is definitely some sort of fascination with cherry pies. All that eating and still maintains that svelte figure!

    ive been let in on a tip that our friend NodeReaper likes fried chicken, grits, and a little bit of cherry coke.

      I know. I saw a user spewing profanity in the CB one day, and read: NodeReaper gobbles up (somebody). BURP! He does eat a lot of nodes. He might even eat your other node, because of duplication. I once stole his cherry pie recipe and added various things to it, though, before returning it to him. I wonder whether he buys his pies from the store now... but I still think he should diversify. Blueberry strudel perhaps?
        I would suggest a lemon pie, as well as the family Black Bottom Pie (which has three layers of chocolate, if, of course, the crust doesn't have any chocolate in it. Then it's four!).
