#3 Double Negatives

A linguistics professor was lecturing to his English 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."
