A linguistics professor was lecturing 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, "Yeah, right."
