High School Textbooks of the Future?

from the gallery of the absurd:

Randomly scattered on the floor of my art studio was an anatomy book, a page torn from Star magazine showing a "pin-thin" Nicole Richie, and a newspaper article about the decline of the American public school system. At that moment, I had a nightmarish vision...What if the obsession with celebrity continues to infiltrate our culture? Will it trickle into our schools? Will celebrities hire themselves out to appear in the pages of textbooks so that kids will be interested in study? Will corporate sponsorship and product placement appear in the pages of algebra, biology and history textbooks? If so, this is how I imagine a page from a high school Fundamental Anatomy 101 textbook would look like.
