I've heard this many times. I finally decided to check it out.

Er...You mean to say that you actually took that part of the joke seriously?

It was obviously part of the humour !! · · wink

But it wasn't actually derivative, because Newton failed to tell anybody about his invention until Leibniz published! And in that spirit, we all use Leibniz's nomenclature and operation symbols to this day.
