  • *snort*

  • Et tu, Pantsé?

    March 4, 2009

  • No matter, rolig. So are they all; all honourable men.

    March 4, 2009

  • Oh, crap, I meant to say, "But Bill is such an honorable man…" I got my Shakes_bear all mixed up.

    March 4, 2009

  • Hey, listen, we come to bury Frank, not to pants him.

    March 4, 2009

  • Hey, listen, we come to bury Frank, not to praise him.

    March 4, 2009

  • But Frank is such an honourable man…

    March 4, 2009

  • Well, first he was his right-hand man. His major-domo. His main supporter. Then he stabbed him.

    It was on the Ides of Febuary, if I recall, and Frank's wife had just had a horrible dream and begged him not to go to the office that day, especially since she had the contractor coming to fix up the kitchen, and had promised to take Frank's mother to the doctor, and had already cancelled her hair appointment, and so how was she supposed to take the girls to soccer practice?! Things degenerated, she stabbed herself in the thigh, but since it was a plastic knife, Frank just slammed the door on his way out.

    But that day, at the office, Frank had no way of knowing that for weeks, Bill had been listening to the skinny guy in the copier-room, who was telling him that Frank was cutting the budget for coffee and there would be a mutiny among the staff, they just needed a leader, you know, a reputable guy, someone Frank would *listen* to. And that day, things reached a head. That is, Frank's head. In a fit of caffeine-deprived pique as well as thinking it for the good of the office, Bill... well, you know the rest.

  • Bill stabbed Frank??

    March 4, 2009

  • Yeah, but "Et tu, Bill?" just doesn't have the same ring.

    March 3, 2009

  • It was Bill, definitely.

    March 3, 2009

  • Agreed. I've never heard it to mean anything good, unless used in a phrase like this: "Bill was Brutus to Frank's Caesar." But even that implies that Bill stabbed Frank.

  • Despite Weirdnet's second definition, it seems to me that Brutus's name has become a byword for a treacherous friend. Et tu, Brute?
