The Fake Headlines?

Would someone care to explain why Jezebel published the exact same critique of Lori Gottlieb's 2008 Atlantic article "Marry Him," two years and two months later under a different author's name?

So, is this just reiterating newsworthiness, a weird April Fools Day joke, or editorial laziness?

*UPDATE (6:42PM, 5/1/10): As I scrolled down in the comments (most of which were sincere responses to the post) I realized that this is likely an April Fools joke.  And to that I say, Jezebel, I really enjoy your posts and humor, but come on, you can do something more clever than this! It's not funny or edgy.  It's just annoying.
