He replied, your honor I did not go to school and I don’t know how to use any. However, I got a scale which I usually use.

Out of curiosity, the judge asked,” how to weigh to ensure it exact a pound of butter? “

The farmer responded,” your honor, before I commenced selling butter to the baker, initially I was buying a pound of bread weighing from the baker. Every day, when he brings the bread, I put on the weighing machine and use the same weight to measure the butter. Therefore, baker is the one to blamed since I used his measure “.
