Though the actual translation from Latin is "So goes the glory of the world," a popular spoof translation is "Gloria threw up on the bus Monday." In the same realm as semper ubi sub ubi.

Jul 12 Word of the Day
The horrible moment when you realise that you have accidentally done something very slightly wrong which has very bad (usually embarassing) implications for you. This is typically the moment of realisation that you just sent a dirty text message to a close member of family, typically your mother, rather than the intended recipient.
Message: "i'm free this afternoon so come over and fuck me senseless, my parents will be out all day"
Recipient: Mum

A Latin phrase meaning "so passes the glory of the world." The term is Templar-Masonic in origin, and has multiple occult connotations and uses among authors, poets, secret societies, and other intellectual oddballs. Loser Clasical Studies students sometimes use it as a form of farewell or goodbye, mostly to make others feel stupid, as a means of dealing with their own insecurity. Can be used to articulate any emotion
James: Okay Matt, see ya later
Matt: Yeah man, sic transit gloria mundi

Matt: AHH Fuck You! Sic transit gloria mundi Bitches!
