What would you have said, instead of "Et tu, Brute?"?

Asked by jfos (7357 points ) March 9th, 2010

In Shakespeare’s famous Julius Caesar, he is attacked and killed by a group of senators, including his friend Brutus (Brute). Among his last words were the famous “Et tu, Brute?”, which translates to “And you, Brutus?”

If you were being attacked and noticed that even your good friend was participating, how would you acknowledge that? What would you say to that friend?

I wouldn’t say anything. I won’t use my last words condemning someone.

@phillis translate please? thank you <hugs>

I would do as I have done when I found out (what I believed to be) my very best friends were joking about me behind my back and being really spiteful and hurtful. I didn’t say anything and just went away and cried a lot. Lesson learned though I suppose.
hugs honeys xx

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@Dr_Dredd I think it means your mother is better in the sack than you are? (Brutus, not you)

mrentropy's avatar

@Dr_Dredd If I remember slacking off in high school Latin properly, it should mean something along the lines of, “Your mother gives me great head.”
