    I was hoping that star eating was a qualifier for a planet hence a planet eating a star.
    Needless to say, very disappointed 😛

    That's impossible. It wouldn't be a planet anymore if it ate its star, by definition.

    Hmm, well, maybe if it ate the star very slowly...

    The earth receives a lot of material from the sun and practically nothing goes the other way (due to the solar wind).
    So technically the Earth is tasting the sun, but not really eating it and 'swallowing it whole' just wouldn't cut it.

    There are comets hitting the sun as shown in this video:
