The images used in textbooks were always the subject of much delight. Whether it was a cringe-worthy haircut in a sociology book, a rather cute looking puppy or even just a dope pair of testicles hanging out in the back of a science textbook, these gems of high school really had it all.
While you’ve no doubt see your fair share of questionable textbook images, I doubt you’ve copped one like this.
The Saudi Arabian Government are desperately trying to recall a history textbook which shows King Faisal chilling with everyone’s favourite little green buddy, Yoda.
“The Ministry of Education regrets the inadvertent error,” said Ahmed al-Eissa, the Saudi education minister.
“The ministry has begun printing a corrected copy of the decision and withdrawing the previous versions, and has formed a legal committee to determine the source of the error and to take appropriate action.”
The image is the work of a young Saudi Arabian artist called Shaweesh, who created a series of images depicting movie stars in historically important Arabian moments.
He’s previously created works involving Darth Vader and Captain America, but how his photo ended up in a history textbook is anyone’s guess.
He said he put the King and Yoda together because they were both intelligent and Yoda and his lightsaber are green, like the Arabian flag.
