"chortel" is not a common word. Where could that come from? Not a translator, which would use "laugh," unless it's got a big vocabulary. Did he hear it? Why did he spell it wrong, when "pretzel" is spelled right?

What about "hillbill?" I've never heard "hillbill," I've only heard "hillbilly." Did he read that and think it was an adverb?

"Amercia?" "Weclome?" "Brinty?" "AMERICA?" "Chuby?" "olny?"

"Blubby?" Now, where did that come from? Either he heard someone else use it (like here http://coa.duckburg.dk/coa/c1/character.php/0/Blubby), or he made it up. If the latter, it would be a stroke of genyus considering the other words.

No one, not even a furriner, would make so many mistakes which are not even internally consistent. Some of these mistakes are not consistent with the most basic laws of English pronounciation (chuby). Some of the misspellings no one who reads back what he's written would make.

Puce might not be a native English speaker, but he's definitely fake.

Or maybe he's developmentally challenged?

It's coming... he's about to say Asperger's... keep a straight face...

No, I don't think he's otherwisely-abled.

Here's one possibility: http://www.meki.8m.com/photo.html

Pluses:
- uses "ha ha" and "ha ha ha".
-posts nonsensical messages at the blogs of his betters.

Minuses:
Website is almost all in Dutch. No English samples found.

Plus:
Turkish its-syntax of-English strangeness not-equal-is.

Minus:
He knows Dutch and therefore IE syntax.
