It has been a year since Paul Rudd donned his iconic Weird Al Yankovic costume.

Recently, the image received a revival when @tygerbugGarrett tweeted the image commenting on the Irony that Rudd's daughter was accompanying him in a Marvel Cinematic Universe costume.

He began:

"She's got her Avengers candy bag. She's dressed up as The Wasp for Halloween, escorted by her father, Paul Rudd, who played Ant-Man, in the actual blockbuster film, Ant-Man and the Wasp."
"But he's decided to go as Weird Al Yankovic."

It appears Weird Al has actually noticed this year.

He responded only as Weird Al can—with a smart parody.

Weird Al in the Ant-Man costume sparked the Twitter populace's creativity almost immediately.

After all, since it's Halloween, if Weird Al doesn't have a costume ready, we have to help him!

But mostly everybody just REALLY wants to see Weird Al as Ant-Man.

We are looking forward to seeing both Paul Rudd's and Weird Al's costumes for Halloween 2019.

Weird Al's foray into film, the cult classic UHF, is available here.

Sometimes life just doesn't have our best interests at heart.

You've hurt yourself in the kitchen, you've hurt yourself in the garden, you've hurt yourself working around the house. But have you ever hurt yourself while drinking water? Have you ever injured yourself while looking at the microwave?

When we think of teenagers one of the first things that comes to mind is the idea that they have a total know-it-all thing going on. I'll be honest, as a teen I was convinced I had things at least mostly figured out. Oh god, so wrong. So very, very wrong.

So now that I'm an adult, there are tons of things I try to explain to the kids and teens in my life, but I know they just sit and stare at me blankly the way I did to my family members who tried to guide me. It's a cycle, I've just come to accept it.

We can all agree getting older is the worst decision we make as humans, right? Who thought this was the best way to live our lives? Being a kid was the best! Everything seemed to be easier, including playing sports, making friends, somehow learning foreign languages without taking four years of college courses. But then...you grow up, losing all those skills.
