'GIRLS GONE WILD' GOES BANKRUPT Seeks Chapter 11 Protection



"Girls Gone Wild" has gone bankrupt ... filing for Chapter 11 reorganization -- but fear not late night TV viewers ... 'GGW' honchos insist "it will be business as usual" for the porn company.

Lawyers for 'GGW' filed docs yesterday in U.S. Bankruptcy Court ... which gives the company protection from creditors while it comes up with a plan to handle all its debts.

According to the docs ... there are 3 subsidiaries of 'GGW' filing for Chapter 11 -- GGW Magazine, GGW Events, and GGW Direct.

In a statement, the company says it remains financially strong ... and throws other corporations under the bus ... claims it's just "like American Airlines and General Motors having sought reorganization under Chapter 11."

As for GGW founder Joe Francis ... he assures us this has no affect on his personal wealth.

Out of high school, I worked in a call center where we took orders for pretty much everything that had an 800 number to call. I worked the third shift, so I always got the drunks and stoners calling. The GGW callers were the worst. One offered to lick my feet and wanted to send me a plane ticket to go with him to Hawaii. There was a caller for the Roll-A-Hose that made it all worth it, though. He was drunk and wanted a gift for father's day. I wish I could have stayed on the phone with him forever.

Girls Gone Wild is connected to one of my weirdest work stories. I was working at a call center that took phone orders for companies. Some guy called to order this and was masturbating over the phone. The strange part is he called back an hour later and I got him again. This was massive call center so I have no idea how I got him two times.
duckyduck92 28th-Feb-2013 07:39 pm (UTC)
Lol, what a multitasker.

You would be surprised how much the perverts dedicate themselves. I used to work in a call center, one guy wanted to hear you talk about hiccuping. Another guy was far more disturbing, he would call up claiming to be mentally disabled and living with his sister. He wanted to write down our price plans in crayons and he would have you pick out each color he should use. Then he would slowly start talking about his sisters while he got you to pick out the colors of the crayons he would write the price plans down and then at the end he would say stuff like I'm smelling my sisters panties now and I'm sitting on her bed. Is that ok? And then there was the most disturbing guy, apparently he was so convincing he got some women to quit over his bullshit, he'd claim he was suicidal and just wanted to talk. So you get to talking to him and apparently he sounded really convincing. Like it was so sad and disturbing that some women would be crying during his calls and then just as you felt like you were getting to him, he'd say, i just came and then hang up. Apparently we were instructed just to get him over to the national suicide hotline(they were very familiar with him) and then hand him over to a supervisor if he refused to be transferred to the suicide line.

OH MY GOD

Wow.

I don't feel bad about my few weird situations. Some people get strange attachments to calling certain phone numbers. I have this guy that randomly calls the hotel I work at and starts some conversation about his nephew having an outie belly button that needs surgery. He then abruptly hangs up.

I just got hired at a call center, thank you for the nightmares.
hangthemj 1st-Mar-2013 05:39 am (UTC)
oh my god this is horrific
sprywonderdog 28th-Feb-2013 09:07 pm (UTC)
Ahaha, I just posted a story about working there above. One of my most loved calls was for Charlton Heston's Bible series and the guy eventually started yelling and cussing at me after a few up-sells.

"As for GGW founder Joe Francis ... he assures us this has no affect on his personal wealth."

how much money can he have? didn't he lose a ton of money over the past few years for legal problems?

Easy access to free porn on the Internet must have destroyed companies like GGW and playboy.
williammiller 28th-Feb-2013 07:39 pm (UTC)
lol, I wonder what Lea Black has to say.
duckyduck92 28th-Feb-2013 07:40 pm (UTC)
She will prob let him stay at her house, lol.
xpretty_vacant 28th-Feb-2013 07:56 pm (UTC)
He's probably resting comfortably on her bust, crying.
troy_macclure 28th-Feb-2013 07:45 pm (UTC)
the internet strikes again!
xpretty_vacant 28th-Feb-2013 07:55 pm (UTC)
Yeeesss! So true. Who the hell would buy these DVD's when you can find the exact same thing for free online?

Non-internet porn is sooo reductive.. lol.
saintvlas22 28th-Feb-2013 11:23 pm (UTC)
I don't know about the ladies, but I don't need a 2 hour DVD to get off. A 2 minute clip and I am gooooddddd.
