[TYPO3] generate page.bodyTag with userfunc

Sorry, my message was a bit cryptic.  What I want to be able to do is add a
random classname on the body tag chosen from an array.  At the moment I'm
faking it: I have the classes set as constants and I use conditions to
select a different class based on the minute of the hour.  It basically
works, but it's a fudge, and a nicer way would be to be able to set the
constants then call a userfunction to pick one at random.  As I see it the
key problem is that I can't figure out how to get the generated class into
the bodyTag using page.bodyTag.  

Maybe the solution is to somehow generate a constant with the userfunc,
since I know that page.bodyTag = <body class="{$myConstant}"> would work.
But I'm reaching the limits of my Typo3 knowledge here!  I certainly have no
idea how I could generate / replace a constant value with a php function.
I've had a look at what the image rotation scripts are doing but nothing
there will help me I think.  Can anyone help?
