Purposeful misspellings

In English, people can often purposefully misspell words, usually for a cutesy effect (as in cat macros - "I can haz cheezburger?" or "ai wubs yu!") or some other effect, usually humorous. Does this effect exist in other languages? How about those that don't follow a Roman alphabet system; what are the equivalents?
