I saw a performance by SNL writer Hannibal Buress tonight, and he had a funny bit about a famous AA slogan (to paraphrase):

People get so cliche when they’re going through shit.  They say ‘well I’m just taking things one day at a time right now’.  Yeah, of course you are, that’s how time works.  We all take it one day at a time.  I don’t even have a heroin problem and I take things one day at a time.

So many of the slogans are really funny, and they ultimately can apply to almost anyone at any time, they’re kind of like horoscopes.
