"Hey, what are you doing!" Noder Q asks.

"I'm lighting my Birthday Cake's candles over and over again, wishing for someone to upvote all my things." Noder A responds, taking out a Zippo.

"Do you think that will work?"

"I don't know, but I hope they do it soon, or else these candles will melt all over my cake and I'll be sad."

"So it'd make you happy if people voted you up."


"So can I ask you a question?"

"You already did."

"Smartass. You know what I mean."


"What's gonna happen if they vote you down."

"Who cares? I mean, this isn't Bowling for Votes. I guess it's better than it could be. Generally, nodes about Everything are just masturbatory, but this isn't."

"I guess. You know what, man?"

"What?" Noder A asks while drinking some nice cold milk.

"The nodeshell rescue team sucks."

Noder A giggles, then the milk comes out of his nose, soaking the candles and ruining the cake.

"Dude," Noder Q says, "It was for the best. Cake sucks. Pie! Pie! Pie! Pie makes you strong! Strength crushes cake! Pie!"
