What's the appropriate saying for when a total asshole gets a heaping mouthful of his own medicine? Is it glee? Euphoria? A brief glimpse into the possibility that all might actually be right with the world?

Or is it simply the following sentence: Someone got their hands on a sex tape of Joe Francis and is threatening to leak it, and he's pissed off about it.

Now. You. Know. How. It. Feels. Joe. Francis.

In case you forgot, Francis is the guy who created that one company whose sole purpose is to trick women into doing sexual things while they're drunk, videotape them, and then sell those videotapes to the world. And look—that's not to say that those women don't have autonomy, and that some of them aren't perfectly fine with the fact that their naked breasts or butts or thong-encased vaginas are on display.

But some of them are not so cool with it, and it appears that our Joe is now experiencing the very same thing. According to TMZ, the sex tape in question was stored on his girlfriend's iPad, which was stolen from her bag at LAX.

Apparently it has footage of several different sexual encounters.

Francis' lawyer, David Houston, told TMZ the following:

"It is not only unfortunate, but it is a crime. As such, this office will take all necessary steps to determine who in fact has done this and who is attempting to distribute the video...When we catch you, we will see that you are prosecuted to the fullest extent of both the criminal and civil laws."
