At first, I thought he was just a nice guy, trying to be a "good Christian" by showing kindness to a complete loser, and hoping to get Nick into Jesus along the way.
But now I'm starting to worry that he's grooming Nick, like a cult leader would. Like, maybe he's planning on molding Nick into an End-Times terrorist-cell suicide bomber. Today, it's listening to Nick's problems, feeding him things he wants to hear, and then subtly pressuring him to work out more. Tomorrow, it's handing Nick a rifle and turning him lose on an abortion clinic full of trolls and statheists.
memedumpster I'm guessing it's a Boxing Helena kind of thing where he ends up limbless in a giant hamster ball.
