Positively Wrong

A linguistics professor was lecturing his class.

"In English," he explained, "a double negative forms a positive.  In some languages, such as Russian, a double negative is still a negative."

"However," the professor continued, "there is no language wherein a double positive can form a negative."

A voice from the back of the room piped up.  "Yeah, right."
