Ethereal Rebuke aka I got yelled at, but it lacked some oomph!

So, I Google Image searched "ethereal rebuke," and I got Mark Ruffalo. And you know, at first I thought, "What the- Why in the world did I get Mark Ruffalo? Think about though. This guy looks like he couldn't possibly give a rebuke of any substance. He's got this "I'm always a little bit high" vibe going on, and I think if someone did something wrong, he'd be more inclined to hug them than rebuke them.

Let's get the show on the road!

Juan Ponce de Leon saw land in the New World for the first time, and the ethereal sensation that overcame was one of total WIN! His happiness permeated so strongly across the world that Louis XII didn't even have the heart to keep on fighting with his neighbors, Spain. And they all lived happily ever after.
