Tough Week for 'Girls Gone Wild' Founder Joe Francis: $34m Tax Lien, Mocked by Stanford Band

Francis

It was a tough week for Francis, as the Stanford band mocked the USC grad at halftime of Stanford's 55-21 rout of USC (text here):

The chatter in the stands seems to illustrate that in is tastelessness, Francis isn't unique at USC.
