Google's Android Statues

Google - like some other tech companies - has some quirky ways at times; whimsical doodles on their flagship search page to celebrate dates and events, and goofy names for their Android operating system versions. Ubuntu also does this with their Linux operating system versions. 

Google Android is the operating system used on millions of smartphones and tablet computers. It has "normal" version numbers like 2.3 and 4.0, but also carries official version names like Gingerbread, Ice Cream Sandwich and the latest one: Jelly Bean. Google being Google, they also have some small statues representing these versions at their headquarters in California, and in fact they recently had to replace the Jelly Bean statue because...yep, the fake Jelly Beans were melting in the hot Cali sun. Can't make this stuff up folks.
