“English side ruined... must use French instructions...”
~ Homer Simpson on sentence fragments

Sentence fragments? Pah. More like "bad grammar". Barely any verbs in sentences. Mostly just adjectives and nouns. Complete nonsense. Sounds disjointed and incoherent. Sometimes acceptable in chatrooms, foreign languages, or with a mouthful of food. Always annoying to read though. And irritating. Hemingway-esque.

Shakespeare's famous verbless play, Hamlet: Prince of Denmark:

Cquote1

Being or not being, that a question;
Whether nobler in the mind suffering
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or arms against a sea of troubles,
And end them. Death, sleep;
No more; and by a sleep stoppage
The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks
That flesh, heir to — a consummation
Devout wishes.
