OK, this struck me as a little bit ridiculous. Safeway has redefined the meaning of a dozen: forget the baker’s dozen, fourteen is the new twelve. Apparently even cardinal numbers are not immune to inflation. Will Albertsons feel compelled to respond by forcing the beleaguered Dozen to admit fifteen members? Will the gluttonous Piggly Wiggly require sixteen items per dozen? How does Score feel about the uppity Dozen nipping at its heels?
