improve my => 'code' Add to Google

I noticed an entry on Wikipedia that made me smile.

SPL or the Shakespeare Programming Language is, in the words of Wikipedia, "designed to make programs appear to be something other than programs; in this case, Shakespearean plays. "

Variables in code are treated like characters in a Shakespearean play.  Variables must "enter" to be useable (allocated?) and "exit" to be declare out of scope...   And variables speak their mind to output to the console.  For instance,

[Enter Juliet]
[Enter Romeo and Juliet]

Hamlet:
Thou art as sweet as the sum of the sum of Romeo and his horse and his black cat! Speak thy mind!

[Exit Romeo]
[Exeunt Romeo and Juliet] [Exeunt]

My only point is - Do you write your code pleasing to the eye?  Or is it a jumble of symbols barely comprehensible? 

I am all for bringing a sense of beauty to our coding, and am open to suggestions.

Interested in your comments,

Jonathan Starr
