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.”
