|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.
