An English Major’s Humor

Last Friday I graduated with Honors from Santa Fe College with an Associate of Arts degree. The following was posted on my favorite professor’s office door.

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.”
