Grammar Cat #128: Dirty Harry 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!

DO U FEELZ = Do you feel

LUCKY PUNK? = lucky, punk?
You need a comma before the vocative "punk" that is added to the sentence.
Do you feel lucky?
Do you feel lucky, punk?

The line is actually a misquotation from the first Dirty Harry movie. What Dirty Harry actually says is: "You've got to ask yourself one question. Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?"
