Psychologists at Sussex University published a new study that claims a horse can not only tell whether a human might be in a bad mood by simply looking at the human’s facial expression, it can do so from a photograph. Anthony and Jeff discuss the emotional empathy of animals, and also perform the entire, full-length Mr. Ed theme song from memory. So no one would blame you if you skip this one.
