He sued the farmer. The judge questioned the farmer in the court if he was using any measure. The farmer replied ,”amour honor, I am primitive. I don’t a proper measure, but I do have a scale.” .” The judge asked, “Then how do you weigh the butter?” The farmer replied “Your Honor, long before the baker started buying butter from me, I have been buying a pound loaf of bread from him. Every day when the baker brings the bread, I put it on the scale and give him the same weight in butter. If anyone is to be blamed, it is the baker.”
