To “increase liquor sales and make money fast,” also to promote other types of growth, the owner of the catchily named Nine Springs Ecological Agriculture Development Co. in Hubei province ordered some internet sildenafil citrate, Viagra’s active ingredient, then dissolved it into baijiu, a strong liquor that already delivers a hefty kick in the pants. The entrepreneurial guy even managed to sell more than a thousand bottles until he was arrested six months later. He’s now in jail, where he’ll no doubt be planning the nitty-gritty of opening his first bar. [China News Agency, Fox Business]
