Won't you come this way and meet my second cousins the square meters.

    They've invited us to join them in a toast.

    I know you haven't met all the metric units but maybe I can tell you a little bit more family background anyway.

    The metric system is really a collection of standard units and prefixes --

    That's how we all got our names.

    Our first name is for the multiple of ten.

    The family name is the unit of measure.

    I'm mm for milli meter.

    I know it's been a long day but won't you have a piece of our .4536 kilogram cake -- some pound cake -- before you go?
