"Et Tu, Brute?" in Black

Here is a sneak peak of some new fire!

We have been in lab cooking up some serious things. Keep checking back for the latest H&H news.

According to Wikipedia:
"Et tu, Brute?" were, according to legend, the last words of Julius Caesar. In English, the sentence means "You too, Brutus?" or "Even you, Brutus?".

On March 15, 44 BC, Julius Caesar was attacked by a group of senators, including Marcus Junius Brutus, a senator and Caesar's close friend. Caesar initially resisted his attackers, but when he saw Brutus, he supposedly spoke those words and resigned himself to his fate.

Probably the most famous 3 words uttered, "Et tu, Brute?", this expression has come to mean ultimate betrayal by one's closest friend(s).

The phrase is often misquoted as "Et tu, Brutus?" Brute is the Latin vocative form of Brutus, used when directly addressing the individual in question. The nominative form, Brutus, would be used in a sentence such as "Brutus killed Caesar", where Brutus is the grammatical subject of a verb.
