Attempts to resolve the Quandary:


The zaftig factotum that I employ is a bit overweight, but she is eager to maintain her health, so she takes her prophylactic with brio. (by Konrad)


She was only a zaftig factotum
But she took her prophylactic with glee,
And the girls in the band
Queued to shake her right hand,
And with brio to feed her with brie,
Dah dum!
