Appelbome, peeled?

I just had a thought onthe Peter Appelbome-kosher gasoline piece (see below). Is it possible the Times reporter actually thought the original article was the real thing, and wasn't let in on the joke until he showed up on Cedar Lane? And having wasted a day in Teaneck and with a deadline looming , turned his mistake into an April Fool's thing?


Mistaken a parody for the real thing?

You mean, the way JTA flagged the NYTimes article in its dispatch as a real news report on kosher-for-pesach gasoline?
