Publisher Accidentally Puts Porn Star on a Maths Textbook

By Robert Sorokanich on at

Lazy Googling strikes again! A Thai textbook publisher had to recall 3,000 copies of a maths textbook after it was discovered that one of the photos on the book's cover came from a porn movie. Won't somebody please think of the children?

Publisher Accidentally Puts Porn Star on Math Textbook

Publisher MuangThaiBook had to recall the textbook after someone realised that the suit-wearing woman holding a folder labelled "Mathematics" was adult film star Mana Aoki. The photograph comes from Aoki's movie, "Costume Play Working Girl," a title which probably doesn't delve too deeply into the nuances of algebra or geometry.

Dr. Chaipruek Serirak, the Secretary General of the Vocational Education Commission, ordered the recall of the textbooks, and has forbidden publishers from using random Google results in textbook design. "The cover and book design will only use drawings or photos taken by the compilers. There will be no more searching for images on the internet," he said.

As for the students who no longer have Mana Aoki gracing the cover of their maths books? They'll just have to find her on the internet. [RocketNews24 via PetaPixel]
