I think pedophiles hide their stuff inside large ISOs renamed into boring things ... classy. The devil's in the checksum

I think the only explanation that makes sense is that the searchers didn't understand English. They found "fucking" and "nipple", and downloaded the file based on that. Perhaps they thought "enraged baboon" was some kind of metaphorical description of the sex act; if they knew that "nipple factory" was nonsensical, they probably wrote it off as cognitive dissonance, due to their poor English comprehension.
