Doubly Positive

Thanks to Ken, a fellow Folder for Team Mac OS X for this one. He posted it in our forums back before I was a part of the team. This one is laugh-out-loud funny!

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."
