I Made Up 17 New Challenges As Dumb As The Body-Shaming 'Paper Waist Challenge'
If you woke up this morning hoping the Internet had come up with yet another reason for you to hate your body, you're in luck.
Fresh from Chinese social networking platform Weibo comes the A4 paper waist challenge, which encourages girls to place a 8.27-inch sheet (an A4) in front of their waists to see if they're small enough to fit behind the white paper. Then, they upload the photo as proof.
This is the most ridiculous thing I've heard of since balancing a pencil under your boobs was a thing. Who cares if you can't "hide" behind a sheet of paper? The only sheets of paper I stand behind are my college diploma and my paychecks.
Instead of partaking in the A4 challenge, try standing behind one of these completely arbitrary objects instead. You'll kill fewer trees, and have no reason to feel bad about yourself.
Stand behind a parking meter!
Peek around a bush (and make an appointment with your waxer ASAP).
Hide behind a traffic sign! Just don't get pulled over by the cops.
Invent the #TrashCanChallenge.
If you can't fit behind a lamppost, we can't be friends.
Save a tree and stand behind it, instead!
Holding up a traffic cone works out your arms and shows off your waist.

Sh*t, this is actually paper. Never mind.
The only paper worth challenging yourself for.
Way more filling than printer paper.
Remember, the #WalletChallenge only works if your wallet is empty as f*ck.
Really want to challenge yourself? Stand behind a lip gloss, instead!
Or better yet, let's say a giant f*ck you to body standards and stand in front of things instead!
