Joe, you are an inspiration to creepers everywhere.

Former Girls Gone Wild sleaze peddler Joe Francis is waiting to be sentenced after his conviction for false imprisonment and assault, but he only has one word for his jury (well, several, really): They all need to be shot for being idiots. Way to make your case, cool guy.

"I want that jury to know that each and every one of you are mentally f--ing retarded and you should be euthanized because, as Darwin said, you have naturally selected yourself," he told The Hollywood Reporter. "You are the weakest members of the herd. Goodbye! And if that jury wants to convict me because I didn't show up, which is the only reason why they did, then, you know, they should all be lined up and shot!"

But don't worry, he's not just ranting; Fracis totally has sound reasoning for this point of view, and it's not simply because he's probably going to prison again. We'll know in July, when he's sentenced.

"The problem with the jury system is that anyone who's not smart enough to come with an excuse to get out of jury duty doesn't get out," he csaid. "Only the stupidest of the stupidest people end up on juries, you know? I've never met a smart person who's done jury duty."

Well, THR points out Francis has been to jail in Florida and Nevada, owes casino tycoon Steve Wynn $20 million from a defamation suit, has been indicted for tax evasion and taking video of underage girls and has lost control of the company that made him famous, but is still tangled up in legal wrangling over it. Joe doesn't particularly sound like the sharpest knife in any drawer.
