This Serbian Textbook Cover Looks Pretty Legit

What? It’s a textbook that features a screencap from Raising Arizona? If anything this is TOO serious for most students. “Boo! Homework sucks!” There are so many things that are obviously hilarious about this, but it also raises a lot of interesting questions. Like, first of all, WHAT? What is going on here? What is this a textbook for? Being in a family? In a rose garden? Chemistry? And, like, OK, you would never see this in America but of course foreigners are crazy, but are they THAT crazy? Like, no matter what, someone still had to find a photograph from Raising Arizona and cut it out with scissors and glue it to a photo of roses to put on the cover of a BOOK for SCHOOL. And then the publisher was like, “This is perfect. We have made a real textbook. Print them all.” Very curious! Mike Daisy should do a This American Life piece about this. I need a textbook just to learn about what is going on with this textbook! (Via KnowYourMeme.)
