According to my old French teacher, that phrase has come to mean so much more than what it actually says... ranging from things like:

"That's how the cookie crumbles" to:
"Wouldn't you know it?"

Of course, those aren't literal meanings, but implied understandings for the above phrase.
"ʞɐǝɹɟ ɐ ǝɹ,noʎ uǝɥʍ 'ʇı ʇ,usı 'ʎlǝuol s,ʇı"
