Promotions Ninja Needs Help Badly

Promotions Ninja shoots and eats the food. Because Promotions Ninja is lazy (see evidence- or sad lack thereof - of Smithee LJ posting as of late). In fact, if it weren't for badmovie we might be going on two solid months of Smithee quiet which is...unnerving to say the least. Anyway, I decided to come out of my haze of slackery and start thinking about Smithee 19 promotions stuff. I have a monster figured out (but not yet drawn up) but the button quotes...eh not so much. Besides, I had a lot of fun last year seeing what quotes y'all liked so I thought I'd do it again this year. Without further ado, here is a poll to vote on!

Poll #1498844 Smithee 18 Button Quotes
This poll is closed.

In no particular order, here are 5 quotes to vote on for the Smithee 18 quote button:

"If we knew what the plan was, we'd know where to begin our investigation." Superargo vs. Diabolicus (1967)
1(6.7%)
"Did you know that being an asshole is the leading cause of death for both men and women?" Trancers 6 (2002)
7(46.7%)
"Life is hot, Frankie. And because it is hot, I am compelled to remove my jacket." Combat Shock (1986)
3(20.0%)
"Why jack off when you can jack in?" Circuitry Man (1990)
2(13.3%)
"Your advice is as about as useful as whiskers on a sausage." Blood Beach (1981)
2(13.3%)


Yeah, one is a repeat but I like it so back it goes into the kettle. I'll leave the poll open for...Oh, lets say 2 weeks (ish) and end it December 31st. Have at it Smithee peeps!

[Argh! Just noticed I got the wrong Smithee on there. We are not going back in time, honest; this is for Smithee 19. In a completely related note: Is there a way to edit polls?]

[Poll is officially closed! And the standings stand at:
"Did you know that being an asshole is the leading cause of death for both men and women?" @7
"Life is hot, Frankie. And because it is hot, I am compelled to remove my jacket." @4
"Your advice is as about as useful as whiskers on a sausage." @3
"Why jack off when you can jack in?" @2
"If we knew what the plan was, we'd know where to begin our investigation." @1

Thanks for voting!]

To answer your question, no there is no way to edit a poll, unless they added one in the last year.
Phoo! I need an editor for my polls! That's the umpteenth one I've messed up.
I have both "asshole leading cause of death" and "why jack off" on my fridge (from the little notepads where I write down my favorite quotes). I wanted jackin' off to have some love though, so I voted for it :)
Nah, you can delete the poll part of the post and re-do it ... but that's the closest that you can get to editing a poll (as of a month or so ago). I code in my polls by hand, but LJ still turns them into "blah blah LJcode poll # 7,265.972"
By the way, is it possible to submit a nomination for Madeline Kahn's "Flames... Flames on the side of my face..." for a one-liner? Or is Clue too A-List?
I voted for Cause of Death like most other people, but I should point out that we're clearly not a representative sample of the Smithee population -- in looking at the voting results, the Plughead line was far and away the most popular of the bunch among actual audiences.
Yeah, but the Smithee peeps who frequent the LJ get cool things, like a chance to vote on stuff! It's all part of the LJ Smithee Friend Perk Package. Which doesn't really get you all that much unless you really like clicking buttons.
Ah, but the Smithee audience by definition likes voting on things. You're just lucky no one's figured out a way to submit hand-drawn pictures as LJ poll votes.
True dat (and stop giving them ideas!)

Oh, I have to vote for one of my favorite Smithee quotations ever: "Life is hot..." from Combat Shock.

I vote for

"Your advice is as about as useful as whiskers on a sausage." Blood Beach (1981)

as it would look great on a button.
