Those words are NOT German, not even with the most vivid imagination.

Sorry I can't help you.

kill me please

This line is a second level version of "Pig Latin", a code American Children use in play, though not usually with this content. First-level Pig Latin would be ***illkay emay easeplay***. The added inversion of the root letters presumably is the next level. Whether this is funny or not depends on the context. At any rate, don't.

kill me please

It is "Pig Latin" like Tom says but I do not see any inversion or second level construction. The first sound of each word is combined with "ay" and placed at the end of the newly formed word. It is not a very formal system since it is just a code for kids, so it is up to the user whether the consonant combination "pl" in "please" is combined with "ay" together or split. You could also say "leasepay".

What the person is trying to tell you with "kill me please" is by no means clear. I hope it is some sort of joke.
