As I read this, my little Quaker parrot is running up and down my arm, asking for a kiss, and then delivering a juicy raspberry against my cheek. So there's that data.

I'm guessing that when we find out what the animals have been saying all along, some of us will feel quite distressed.

But, then, we can shrug that off too. Or, as science says, "adapt". And a new group of denialists will fester.

I will be excited when I can get my dog a translation collar like in the movie Up.
