How does hearing the English language being cruelly maimed feel to you? Do you dislike Engrish? Do you use it? Why?

What do you mean? In mockery, or by foreigners just mispronouncing words?

Who speaks proper English anymore? We are kinda just pronouncing the words(terribly) and assigning what we think they mean.

Grammar Nazis would cry a river if they knew how "Knife" was actually pronounced.

Mockery is okay if used lightheartedly, I guess. With foreigners it's completely understandable. Mispronunciation is expected.

I dislike Engrish because everyone speaks Engrish. I always feel obligated to speak Engrish because--well--I want to speak my language to random people. I have, actually. And what do they do? They look at me like a fool. Fuck you, Engrish.

I don't mind if it's done by people who speak English as a second language, but when it's done by native English speakers, I just feel...sad.

ALL I HAVE TO SAY IS FUCK PROPER GRAMMAR SKILLS

as long as your understood and people know what your talking about at/or/of the present time/and/generation without misinterpretation

THEN IT DOESN'T FUCKING MATTER

Apparently a couple of people I know. They tend to dislike anyone that isn't white and use it as an excuse to malign people. I think it's their attempt at Engrish even though they are as Caucasian as you can get. It's just in bad taste... The first time or two it might've been funny but hearing them say it almost every time I see them, it gets really old...
