In Singapore there was reputed to be an old Chinese Herbalist, who sold pills
that guaranteed pregnant women that the baby would be a boy, providing that
they took the pills in the early stages of the pregnancy.
He also promised to refund the cost of the pills if they failed to work.
And, true to his word, he did just that.
Result, everyone a winner, and he made a pile of money.
