        Yet New Zealand banned Canadian milk over it containing palm oil as a filler (this is why cheap Canadian milk makes poor espresso foam, only the expensive brands don't use fillers)

          >Canadian milk containing palm oil
          The Canadian dairy cartel accidently added too much leading to everyone realizing room temperature butter was abnormally hard.

          eke is a synonym for also/in addition
          esses is the plural for esse
          salubrious means healthy/wholesome

          I almost spelled tragically as tragœcally but the latter was never a real word when I proof read my post before I posted.

            Wait, did you mean A/K/A? The abbreviation for "Also Known As"?
            "Eke" (pronounced eek) is a verb, meaning to just barely make ends meet by scrimping and saving.

            >esses is the plural for esse
            "Esse" isn't a word in standard English. You might see it as a specialized word used in academic Philosophy writing, but most people won't recognize it.

            >salubrious means healthy/wholesome
            "Salubrious" is used to describe something that is healthy to do/consume. Exercise is salubrious. Fresh air is salubrious. You wouldn't say that a person is salubrious, or that he's trying to stay salubrious. Instead, you might say he's trying to live a salubrious lifestyle, but even then it's an uncommon usage.

            Am I right in guessing that English isn't your first language? I'm sure you speak it better than I could ever speak yours. But be sparing in your use of the thesaurus. All our synonyms can be really tricky. Because they generally don't mean precisely the same thing, but have different connotations and shades of meaning, even different usage. (Which is why Google Translate can give hilariously bad results.)

            >I almost spelled tragically as tragœcally
            Why? What made you think anything in English would ever be spelled with a connected o and e? English doesn't have vowels like that. Sometimes in archaic usage, you'd find a ligature to indicate a word was borrowed from classical Greek or Latin. I'm not sure how you'd even pronounce œ. Oy? Weh? Oh? And how do you get œ from the "i" in "tragic," which is pronounced like the vowel in "fix," "stick," and Sluggo is "Lit."

              "Eke" has been used the way he describes, but it's very archaic, bordering on Middle English.

                It hasn't been used that way for hundreds of years. Where would he have gotten the idea it's even a word, much less that it means "also?"

                OP should have instead used the Latin preposition ‘cum’, if he/she wanted to sound formal in contrast to sounding archaic.

                The revised sentence would be:

          This isn't entirely accurate. The palm oil isn't a filler it's added to the cows diet to supplement higher fat content

    I was initially going to word this in the "did you hear the tragedy of..." copypasta but when proof reading it, it felt zoomeresque and disrespectful to the ISTmic artist so I worded my post to be more proper.

        I'm saving that word and plan to use it in future, although all three are short words so eo ipso cannot be called sesquipedalian.

        My apologies, it would appear I have used an adjective incorrectly as a noun which hitherto I did not cognized.
        I should have reworded the post to either "stay in a salutiferous state" or turn it into a noun by converting the word with the prefix -ity.
        You have bewrixled my baleful display of severe mental moronation from a wankle stercoraceous misuse of Latin emanated vocabulary, to a more accurate couth composition.
