Food for Thought

I'm a fan of Hannibal Lecter, Anthony Hopkins' character in "Silence of the Lambs" and "Hannibal." I think it's a stroke of dark-comedy genuis when Dr. Lecter indicates his decision to make his fatal move on someone by saying, "Okey dokey," an expression which doesn't match the demeanor of this erudite, criminal psychiatrist.

I was lounging in my easy chair watching women's bowling or something when Jonka called me unsuccessfully three times to the dinner table. "Alright," she concluded, "go ahead and lie there and feed off your own fat."

"Okey dokey," I replied.
