Attempts to resolve the Quandary:


Lester was told that if he created a successful advertising campaign to promote breastfeeding, he would receive his due meed, and being unfamiliar with the term and an aficionado of craft brewing, he thought that the expression was used to neologize being rewarded with a trip to the nearby brewery which poured an award-winning mead, and, thus inspired, he thought that beer might prove to be a potent galactogogue; however, his video entitled “Drink Up, Moms”, which featured inebriated buxom women at a bar removing their blouses, was not praised, but reviled as a heinous attack on women and the true purpose of mammary glands.

The heinous woolen sweater, with its rough texture and multiple folds, offset the steady flow produced by the galactagogue, depriving the hungry infant, exhausted from struggling, of her meed, at which point her tiny lungs and mouth combined to neologize, "…mowah!", a term all new mothers eventually come to understand.
