Yup

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 in which a double positive can form a negative." A voice from the back of the room piped up, "Yeah, right."
