THE MOST UNKINDEST CUT is what Marc Antony called
Brutus' fatal wounding of Caesar in Shakespeare's
_Julius Caesar_.

I like to think of him as saying "This is the most--
(hesitation) unkindest cut of all," as if he when
he thought of the word "unkindest" he meant to cancel
out the "most". But I suspect it was just a
Shakespearean emphasis that today would be
unacceptable.
