High school yearbooks tend to be embarrassing enough when we look back at them five or ten years later. But for two Big Bear High School students, they are about to become infinitely more humiliating, after the school's annual printing was recalled because a picture of the duo constituted child pornography. In the photo, which hasn't been released for obvious reasons, a 17-year-old boy can be seen in the background with his hands up a 15-year-old girl's skirt, reports KCBS.

School administrators say that they don't know how the photo wound up there, or how it made it past the eagle eyes of both the yearbook team and the yearbook advisor. We say, someone at Big Bear High School might have a twisted sense of humor.

At any rate, students are being asked to turn their yearbooks back in so the photos can be removed, and most have complied. Those who haven't are being reminded that by hanging on to their memories of the glory days, they could be charged with possession of child porn.
