Double Positive

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."
