Cooking oil
Olive, groundnut, or sunflower oil

Nice idea BUT! one of the accepted uses for WD-40 is to flood the inside of large aircraft assemblys like wing structures and then drain to prevent moisture from causing corrosion, while I like to use food grade oils for things like kitchen equipment I think we will just keep using the WD where it's needed.
