Double Positive

A linguistics professor was lecturing to her class one day. “In English,”
she 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.”
