Baker's Dozen ..Medieval law specified the weight of loaves of bread in England in 1266. During years of good harvests, bakers could make more bread than they could sell locally, so they would sell the excess loaves to middlemen. The only way for these distributors to make money would be to give them extra loaves. The baker would give the huckster a thirteenth loaf for each dozen. This extra loaf provided the profit for the middleman.
