Your opinion, Count

As you may know, my website (warning: today's entry is in crappy Systran-abetted German) has, since it inception, contained a Quote of the Day. It's usually some quote from a novel, an essay, or a quotebook that I have found interesting or worthwhile. It's occasionally strayed -- past QOTDs have been lame lines from comic books, bizarre Bible quotes, etc. -- but generally, that's the formula it follows. I have balanced the fact that I think Quote of the Day is kind of a lame thing to do with the fact that I really do like a lot of the quotes, and additionally, at least one of my six readers seems to enjoy the feature.

There's only one problem: I'm almost out of quotes. When I started the Ludic Log, I had about 400 of them in a big text file, and each day, I'd put up a new one and delete it from the text file. Well, today, that file is one page long. I will quite soon -- say, within two weeks -- run out of quotes, and I don't really want to comb through dozens of books finding new ones. I'd prefer to just collect them as I go along, the way I had done when I first started doing it over ten years ago.

So, I ask you, my adoring public: won't you take this poll, and help me decide what to do when I run out of quotes? Jesus loves you for helping me.

Poll #112703 The Poll and the Hole

What should Leonard do when he runs out of quotes for his Quote of the Day?

Go find some new quotes instead of whining about it like a sissy
Look up funny names in the phone book
Create a news ticker with baseball scores and stock quotes and crap like that
Discontinue the Quote of the Day feature, already, for Christ's sake
Some other thing, which I will specify in the comments section of this post
