I enjoyed it, though not as much as Cat's Cradle.

I think the point is that death is so common that it only rates a "so it goes," at least in the Tralfamadorian philosophy and to many of the warmakers. It seems to be at odds with the view of the narrator.

And sometimes the phrase is used comically.
