Awake at Stupid O’Clock . . . .

I’m awake at stupid O’clock again, and am too fibro-fogged to be able to study, but I thought I’d look in on the various forums for my course, just to see if anything’s new.

What I did come across is the following, and it tickled me so much, I thought I’d share it:

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,” he pointed out, “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 know, I know – but it’s funny, you’ve got to admit that? {grin}
