Someone is stealing my status updates and it's weird

This sounds like such a weird complaint but I've noticed that one of my Facebook friends has been stealing my status updates and posting them as his with some modification. A couple of weeks ago there was a really crazy winter storm so I posted a story about how I remember the time where we got shitfaced during the blizzard of 2005 (I'm summarizing). It started out, "this storm reminds me of the blizzard of 2005 and we got so crazy drunk..." He "likes" my status. A few hours later he posts an update that begins, "you know, this storm reminds me of the blizzard of 2005 when we didn't let a blizzard keep us from getting super drunk." Ok. No one else was telling stories. It wasn't exactly "trending" and he chose the same exact blizzard. Whatever. Weird coincidence, but I'm willing to overlook it. Then today, he posts an almost verbatim status update (that he "liked" two days ago when I posted it) as his own. Is my friend Shia LeBeouf'ing me?
