While I have no interest in doing that, that was obviously not what I meant.

If this was a case of bad English, I'd be grateful if someone were to point out how to better formulate the sentence I wanted.

If, on the other hand its merely a case of being silly (considering the thread we're in, it's hard to tell):

You could say "one of his CDs", but then it could be taken to mean that you wouldn't buy a CD that he owns. English, c'est le funneh.

Yes, English is sort of like a funnel, but so are most languages when you think about it.

Wait, if we tell you how to say something, you'll take our word for it and say it that way?

I'm sure the voice of Rikard Petersen is better.

Possibly "a CD featuring him" or "a CD by him" would be reasonable alternatives. Both of those would suggest a CD on which Rikard Wolff performed (whereas Squinky's example, whilst acceptable English, could be misinterpreted as she said)

Note to Trumgottist. If Giligan tells you how to say something, don't take his word for it.

I own Wolf by Swiet & Bjuster. One of those accidental acquisitions in a foreign language. Could be German. Not sure really.

You should get an engineer out to look at that. You don't want one of those getting into the manifold.

A CD on which Rikard Wolff performed? I wouldn't buy that! It would be all scratched after he stood with his feet on it for hours!




Oh, and I think I'm in love with the Nuutbook...

I'm in love with you for being in love with that.

Actually, I'm not.

Just pretend she's a Femmebot, the gun barrel titties are surely enough to turn you on.

No, I don't mix business with stuff that's supposed to be soft and squishy.

Now if she had a couple of holsters that hang down her thighs, like Lara Croft, it'd be a whole 'nother deal.
