The "or what?" was a question, since I didn't know what it was a
reference to. I guess it's pretty clear that I didn't take English
literature and, yes, I do feel like an idiot, but I still think *Ariel
Bender* sounds very uncool.

Now that we've got *Ariel* straightened out (thanks "tojackson"), is
*Bender* the last name of the same Shakespeare character, or what? I
still haven't read The Tempest...
