A lecture about English

An English Professor was lecturing to his class one day. "In English," he said, "A double negative forms a positive. For example, 'We don't need no education' actually means, 'We need education.' 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."
