Pi Xiu Legend

Pi Xiu Pi Yao Feng Shui

Pi Xiu is the ninth son of the Dragon King. On one occasion he was invited to attend the birthday party of the Jade Emperor in Heaven.

The Jade Emperor is the ruler of heaven and earth.

Pi Xiu was overwhelmed by all the gold and silver in the palace. He was unable to control his craving for gold and ate all the gold he could find.

Soon his overeating gave him an upset stomach. It got really bad and he pooped right on the palace floor.

Just then the Jade Emperor came in and caught him in the act. The Jade Emperor was furious. It was disgusting to say the least.

In a fit of rage the Jade Emperor smacked him hard on his buttock. The smack had a serious consequence. From that moment on the anus of Pi Xiu would be forever sealed.

His hunger for gold is constant, but he can never again excrete anything he consumes.
