Well, it is ungrammatical. But does the author delibrately used this ungrammatical form to sound like a hick/red neck/uncultured so as to make an impression of hospitality?


I can has cheezburger? Protein cancer risk overblown

Are you middle-aged and partial to cheeseburgers? If so, you may be concerned by a study suggesting you have a much greater risk of dying from cancer than your peers who favour a less protein-rich diet. But not all researchers agree with the study's findings.

Morgan Levine at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles and her colleagues analysed a dietary survey of more than 6300 people in the US aged over 50. Those aged 50-65 at the time of the survey and who had a high-protein diet – one where protein supplied a fifth of calories – were 75 per cent more likely to have died over the next 18 years than peers who only got 10 per cent of their calories from protein.

It's an internet meme. People will post cute pictures of cats saying ungrammatical things such as "i can has cheeseburger," and everyone is expected to say: "Aw, isn't that cute?" To English-speakers, at least, who are familiar with the internet, it would get a smile and a nod.

The entire "cute cats" on the internet thing has become a sort of meta-meme. A common joke about the internet these days is that people will spend lots of money to get the latest technology and pay a hefty fee for internet service . . . just so they can go look at pictures of cats.
