Instead of tearing their hair out over the poor exchange rate of their currency after it touched a new low on Wednesday, South Africans expressed their frustration with humour.

Twitter users adopted the hastag #StrongerThanTheRand to make fun of the weakness of their currency by comparing it to unlikely things that are stronger.

Even US presidential candidates Donald Trump and Deez Nuts, North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un and South African president Jacob Zuma were not safe.

 

Unsurprisingly, marketing companies tried to take advantage of the hastag.

The rand touched a new low of R14 to the US dollar on 24 August. It also hit r21 to the British Pound, and R15.35 to the euro, but has rebounded a bit since.
