Google Android Jelly Bean Statue Loses Its Cool and Its Head

Anyone that follows Android, new version of the operating system launches, Google has a special statue built reflecting the dessert the latest version of the operating system is named after. The newest version of the OS is called Jelly Bean and the new statue has been standing on Google's lawn for a while now.

The new statue has a clear body with a bunch of jelly beans inside and wears the typical green Android arms and legs. Apparently, the clear plastic wasn't up to withstanding the direct sunlight and melted causing the head to pop off the statue and the jelly beans to spill. Someone even made off with at least one of the jelly beans. Google says that the designer of the statute is working on a fix and is asking people to not steal the jelly beans.
