A sarcastic phrase used after something you just did or said that seriously offended someone around your immediate area and caused them to call it to your attention. These things usually pertain to a lewd or racist comments; however, they also include degrading women(who fucking suck) or other shitty people and things(asians,faggots, ect.) Actions may consist of hitting a pussy or throwing a rock at a police officer. The phrase is used in order to shake fucking haters off your back who get mad when you do something that they deem is not socially acceptable. Normally we would tell them to go fuck their mother but in some situations we just politely say "Sorry about it" In essence it really means the exact same thing but this is a more elegant way of implying it. The use of the term was brought into widespread use around Washington D.C. by Gonzaga's swim trip to Florida, its original founders were Jackson Stainglass, Cnork Fitzjerald and Timmie Berry however once back at school it was immediately conformed to by Mattu Skabwinskie, Jack Kyle and Willy Nevs. As a result of their extreme funniness and people trying to fucking be them, others have adopted the term. Gonzaga kids have always had free will to use it but those stupid fucks from Visitation, whores from Ireton and poor ass Public School kids hold no rights to the phrase. Also basically anyone on facebook who doesn't go to Gonzaga is a fucking poser and should have their vaginas dildoed with a goddamn knife.
