Somebody call Stockholm. Google today released Translate for Animals on the Android Market, marking the groundbreaking app that finally lets us humans communicate with our two-, three- and four-legged brethren.

The revolutionary applications -- which is free, despite the centuries of development time -- translates the speech of cats, dogs, birds, rabbits, Guinea pigs, hamsters, tortoises, horses, chickens, sheep, donkeys and pigs. Support for snakes, goats, bison and wildebeests is expected in a future update, slated for sometime in the the second half of 2010.

It's not early for everyone. It's been April 1 in Australia for the last 13 hours. Perhaps Google released it early to get maximum coverage.

Too bad it's not true though. That app would be awesome.
