ジョーク「二重肯定」:Double Positive Joke

TUI's 'Yeah Right' ad (c) Buzzfeed
An MIT linguistics professor was lecturing his class the other day. "In English," he said, "a double negative forms a positive. However, in some languages, such as Russian, a double negative remains a negative. But there isn't a single language, not one, in which a double positive can express a negative."

A voice from the back of the room piped up, "Yeah, right."
