numerals, Roman, large, overly, printing of, how to do it

GUIDO CANTABRIGIENSIS PERDITOR PERDELIRUS
OK, somebody has to ask: What, O mighty and imponederable Quux, does
this phrase mean in English, if indeed it is translatable and not too

My Latin stopped with "Sic Friat Crustulum": So crumbles the cookie.
(Actually, I think it's "biscuit" -- the Romans seem not have had
cookies in the modern sense, since Cortes had not yet conquered the land
where chocolate chips grow.)
