Which word should I use to replace "palatable"?I will also tell you that the use of the illiterate "ya" next to the extremely uncommon, scholarly "salutation!" produce a ludicrous effect, as does the use of the illiterate "gonna" followed by the uncommon word "palatable".
Once upon a time there was a ferocious eagle which was the king of birds. He often hovered over the valley scouting around for food. One day he found there was a female owl staying in her nest with her four eggs. When the eagle dived down on the nest and was going to eat the eggs, the mother owl said deferentially, "Salutation! King Eagle! Ya aren't hurgry, are ya?"
"Yes, I am. Ma'am!" the drooling eagle answered in a husky voice . "I'm hungry to death. I gonna to take these four eggs for my breakfast. Mmm, they must be palatable."
