    Apparently, Android Jelly Bean is so incredible it's heat has melted its own statue in front of the Google offices. Well, okay, it was probably the Summer heat and sun that was the actual culprit, but it makes for an amusing story regardless. Yes, the brand new Jelly Bean Android statue that Googlers erected in their front yard, partially melted and its Android head came off. This information was recently conveyed by Google's Dan Morrill via his Google+ account. He also shared that they think someone made off with one of the Jelly Beans. Strange. Here's the full quote from his Google+ post which you can see at the source link below,

    I love the "working on a bug fix" comment. It's good to know they have the some of the top engineers in the world working on the conundrum. :D

    I'm sure that 'magnifying glass' of a domed container helped heat things up!

    I wonder if the clear dome shaped plastic had anything to do with the melting factor, you know like sunlight through a magnifying glass... wait I thought Google's engineer were highly educated :blink: It's almost ironic that the ICS statue didn't melt in the heat. If I pull an ics out of my freezer it's melted in like 2 minutes. Is it just me or does the jelly bean statue look smaller than all of the other statues. The cupcake and donut statues are huge but it seems with each new version of android Google spends a little less on the production of the statue. If Google goes with key lime pie as the version to follow JB who know how small it will be, they may just make the statue one slice as apposed to an entire pie. :wink-b:

    Anyone who would be so foolish to steal one of the jellybeans will hopefully also be foolish enough to try to sell it or show it off to friends. Maybe someone will turn the creep in and he'll be waiting a long time for any chance to get a jellybean again.:mad:

    Google should have a contest where people guess how many jb's are in the statue. My guess would be one less than their used to be. :crazy:
