    English Lecture


    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."

    ...I'm pretty sure he was referring to proper English and not necessarily a colloquialism of that sort, but it's still pretty doggone funny!! Nice one, Alex.
