A professor in a classroom is saying:

"There are some languages that allows you to combine two
negatives to make a positive. In English we use them occasionaly
(e.g. don't go without your skates=go with your skates)."

"However, there are NO languages where two positives combined
to make a negative".

To which, a student replied "--,  -----!" immediatly proving the
professor wrong.

What was it that the student said?

"Yeah, yeah."

P.S.  The above should be spoken in a voice dripping with sarcasm, preferably while sitting in the back of the class.

Correct, Well done!

That particular answer would explain Rob's Brooklyn,  NY roots.

"yeah right!" would also be correct (especially coming from a West Coaster)

Or even "yeah, Sure!".

10 points for Rob minus 2 points for using the same words in an answer requiring merely two words.

So Rob has redeemed himself after the near fiasco "triplet" question.
