Dr. Hannibal Lecter is known for his renowned psychiatry practice, his elaborate dinner parties, and his affinity for long pig; but perhaps one of his more niche skills is his ability to make a pun out of any occasion. Even his congratulations are a double entendre - when Dr. Lecter says "well done," he means both in your accomplishments and in the kitchen. Though the multifaceted chef holds himself accountable by only eating the rude, his definition of discourteousness aligns with his standard of eloquence. In other words, it would be in your best interest to laugh at his jokes. 

Bryan Fuller's three-part series Hannibal is a showcase of the doctor and his colleagues' best food-related puns. Alongside Hannibal's best meals are also his best jokes. If you're looking for more shows like Hannibal, Watchworthy's got your back.
