Help me come up with the wittiest motto for 2017.

By the end of December, my friends and I submit our wittiest mottoes for the coming year. They are usually dark, relevant to recent events, and/or absurd, and they're always funny. I can't think of a good one this year (mostly because I am just sad about everything and none of it comes of as funny). Please help me come up with one and lift my spirits!

Thanks.

Hmm. I am not as witty as I'd thought. 2017 is going to be a tough nut to crack.
