Mangled English.
 
As a native English speaker I really enjoyed reading the mangled nonsense below, it made no sense, but the misplaced and misused words were amusing to read through.
 
I wonder if any non-native English speaker would get that at all or if it is just a jumble of words they know the meaning of but make no sense.
 
I have a putting (mini golf?) scorecard at home from somewhere Greek from when I was a kid, the nonsensically translated rules of play are still funny to me.
 

I am also aware I may have made up a new word or two at times on here, doing so and deliberately mispronouncing words is something that also amuses me to do. Deliberate spoonerisms are also lots of fun to me.
 
Is this a common thing? I get the feeling I do it more than most people I spend time with.
Some men are born mediocre, some men achieve mediocrity, and some men have mediocrity thrust upon them.
