The genius of Newton

This is just a short joke I found today:

Archimedes, Pascal, and Newton are playing hide-and-seek.
Archimedes covers his eyes and starts counting.
Pascal looks around and hides behind a bush.
Newton grabs a stick and scrapes a one meter by one meter square in the dirt and stands in it. Otherwise he does not hide at all.
Archimedes opens his eyes and looks around. Of course, he immediately sees Newton and calls "I see Newton" Newton calmly says "But hang on, one Newton in a square meter is a Pascal!"

It is handy when you have physical units named after you......
