Message: Elaborate joke?

My current favourite line in all of Wikipedia is the last sentence of the first paragraph of this entry:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gettier_problem

It begs the question, "Are they who were right for the wrong reasons now wrong for the right reasons?"

Or was that name deliberately chosen as an elaborate and highly sophisticated joke by someone who really does know what is going on?

I doubt it, but cannot definitively eliminate the possibility.
