So the next time you get busted by your boss cooing at Boo the Pomeranian, you can quote a just-published study out of Japan, that found looking at cute images of baby animals can actually make you more productive at work.

Researchers at Hiroshima University had students complete a series of work-like tasks, reportsGawker. During breaks, the participants were shown photos of either baby animals, adult animals, or delicious foods.  Those who were shown the cute baby animals out-performed those who were shown the food or grown-up animals by a significant margin.
