En Wang is one great name to put on a business card, especially if you're selling fake Viagra. And since your company is called Jiao Long USAO, you can get even more creative and emphasize some words.

Wang isn't around to hear this advice, however; he is on the run. That didn't stop him from getting sentenced to 33 months in absentia today for selling large amounts of fake boner pills.

Wang was convicted in September, made bond and then fled the country. He flew to Mexico, and from there returned to China, officials say.

His fake pills "contained a substance used to manufacture sheetrock," federal prosecutors say. Come on, there's a reason it's got "rock" as part of the name, right?

Thousands of pills were either intercepted on the way or delivered to Wang's home on the far west side of town, prosecutors said.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
