Grammar Cat #126: Christmas Cat

Can you help this cat? Think about how to improve the English and then click "Show Correct Cat" to see a corrected version. There are some English notes at the bottom; if you have a question that is not answered there, leave a comment!

PLZ SANTA = Please, Santa,
The name "Santa" here is a vocative inserted into the sentence, so it is set off with a comma both before and after.

I CAN HAZ = can I have 
English has a special word order for questions:
I can have a cheeseburger.
Can I have a cheeseburger?

CHEEZBURGER? = a cheeseburger?
Don't forget the definite article: a cheeseburger.
