Step aside ‘A4 waist,' ‘iPhone legs' and 'bellybutton challenge' — there's a new body-shaming test in town. This time, the RMB100 note is the latest tool in measuring slimness, because apparently people aren't sick of these challenges yet.

The challenge requires people to wrap the note around their wrists without any gaps showing. (The RMB100 note measures 155 by 77 millimeters). Many netizens have joined in on the challenge, with some even using smaller banknotes to show off their slim wrists.

Some have also gone beyond sharing photos by taking to Meipai to flaunt videos of their '100 yuan wrists.'

Joked one netizen who could not pass the test: "Though I do not have '100 yuan banknote wrist,' at least I have a 100 yuan note."

When will these slimness challenges come to an end? Soon, we can only hope.
