Gosh, but you Germans really do think literally than laterally.An English friend swears to me that "diamond" in Britspeak is an adjective and it means brilliant. He calls me a "diamond bird".I've also heard that Bowie simply wanted to juxtapose a girl's best friend (diamonds) with a man's (dogs). All of which leads me to conclude that "dogs made out of diamonds" would be a laughable mistranslation.He'll have you wrestling midgets in border towns for ten percent of the net.
