Chacham's Journal: Verbiage: Latin in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

Journal by Chacham

From time to time i've wondered what the Latin in the ending of Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory was. Too lazy to type it in myself, i've searched google lazily, and never found it.

Well, this time i did it! A site claims to have the script which seems ok. The ending is:

"I, the undersigned, shall forfeit all rights, privileges, and licenses herein and herein contained, et cetera, et cetera . . . fax mentis incendium gloria culpum, et cetera, et cetera . . . memo bis punitor delicatum!" It's all there, black and white, clear as crystal! You stole Fizzy Lifting Drinks. You bumped into the ceiling which now has to be washed and sterilized, so you get nothing! You lose! Good day, sir!

The Latin, translated via Google Translate, reads:

and so on, and so forth. . . the glory of the burning fire was the fault of the torch of the mind, and so on, and so on. . . memory twice punishing nice!

Not sure what it means....but, mission accomplished. And, searching for the Latin phrase on google, does indeed bring it up easily.
