Well, independent reinvention isn't absolutely impossible. After all, in one of G. Legman's books he notes a limerick of which he had claims from three men as to their authorship of it. Since the limerick was in English he was hesitant about accepting the claim from the man who could speak little of it, but that still left two authors.
