If you have the ability to patch your Mailman installation, you could add a 
new variable name (like mlist.fortune) to the ALLOWEDS array in 
Mailman/Gui/Digest.py and then use the 'withlist' command to set this 
variable to a new value every so often, and include it in the msg_footer 
field in your admin interface.  Or you could do a more direct & brutal 
patch to search & replace a magic string of your choosing (__FORTUNE__ etc) 
with the output of a random fortune command, right in NonDigest.py .  I 
don't know of any way to do what you want without patching Mailman.
