|The World According to Nick|

There are some phrases that we all know, and are deeply ingrained in our society. They're the classics, that are used and acknowledged with almost no forethought. But as times have changed, and our beliefs have evolved... one has to wonder if some of these sayings aren't in need of a little retuning. For instance, if you aren't religious... can you really ever use the classic Shakespeare: "All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players." After all, if the world is a stage, and we are merely players, doesn't that imply that there is a writer?
So with that in mind, might I suggest the following updated version of that classic:
"All the world is an improv, And all the men and woman are the troupers."
Granted, it lacks Shakespeare's knack for iambic pentameter... but it's just another random thought that popped into my head today.
