A linguistics professor was giving a lecture to his class one day.

“In English,” he said, “A double negative forms a positive. In some languages though, such as Russian, a double negative is still a negative. However, there is no language wherein a double positive can form a negative.”

A voice from the back of the room piped up and yelled: “Yeah, right.”
