Answer:
**A very unlucky one.**

Two people, Jack and Jill, went up that hill. Adding 11 gives 13, reputedly a very unlucky number indeed. There are a number of accounts of the origin of thirteen's unfortunate reputation. One of the most frequently-cited has to do with the Last Supper, in which Jesus sat down with his twelve disciples, making thirteen people at the table. Jesus was then betrayed by one of those disciples, Judas Iscariot, leading to the superstition that if thirteen people sit down to dinner together, one will shortly die.

Answer:
**The number of blackbirds baked in a pie.**

A baker's dozen of anything is 13 - adding 11 gives 24 - "four and twenty blackbirds baked in a pie", from "Sing a Song of Sixpence". There are 30 days in September. Oxygen's atomic number is 8.

Including 13 item's in a "baker's dozen" originated in the 13th century in England. Bakers were known for selling skimpy goods-so, even though you got a dozen loaves in an order, each loaf was small and unsatisfactory. King Henry III enacted a law requiring loaves to weigh a minimum number of ounces. Bakers then were afraid of coming up short, so they threw in an extra loaf to ensure they met the weight requirements-hence, a "baker's dozen".

Answer:
**Part of a "Catch"-y title by Joseph Heller.**

There are 11 players per team on the field in the games mentioned. Adding 11 to that figure gives 22. Joseph Heller is the author of Catch-22, a famed classic satirical novel about the military during the Second World War. The "catches" were paradoxical glitches in the military rules that rendered effective and logical actions impossible. Catch-22 went like this: Men flying bombing missions sometimes felt so keenly that they were wrong that they tried to get out of flying any more missions by claiming mental unfitness for duty.

However, by definition (the military's definition),, the desire not to fly missions proved a person's sanity, so anyone who tried to avoid flying by reason of mental unfitness was necessarily deemed sane and had to continue flying.

The phrase has become part of our daily language, describing all kinds of absurd double-bind situations.
