I am not sure whether someone or me have ever posted the first joke or not. If anyone has, sorry for reposting.

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, there is no language wherein a double positive can form a negative."

A voice from the back of the room piped up, "Yeah, right".
Incidentally we heard the news yesterday. Bush strikes again!! Go figure out what language he speaks and then determine what he really mean? Enjoy and have nice weekend!

"Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we," Bush said.
