There wasn't an option for "unnatural chinese sentence" so i just wanted to mention here that this sounds like a very weird way to talk. If a non native speaker said it, sure fine. (It is understandable) If a native speaker talks like that i might check for a zip if he/she is wearing a human skin suit.
