Something Gingerbread-Related in Google’s Oven

Okay so this one just hit us from left field and we’re still trying to wrap our heads around it as we type.  Google Mobile just tweeted something terribly cryptic this afternoon and posted a picture of what look like Gingerbread men made out of Androids.  If anyone out there has any idea as to what this means, please hit us up.

    I’m hoping it means that Gingerbread is fresh out of the oven i.e. It’s ready and will be pushed out soon! 😀

    I don’t think it’s cryptic at all. Google actually has cafe’s etc. on campus, so they probably are baking these, because everyone knows gingerbread is coming soon.

    I think someone is teasing us. And it is working… When the pic shows them flying, you’ll know it’s OTA time :-)

    Duh… These little guys are dressed in red, white, and green – very much Christmas colors. They’re saying Gingerbread will be out in time for Christmas.

    Actually, I think they’ve started Google Bakery(beta) and are now cruelly using their powers over the internet to make us all want cookies.

    I think they are Androids made out of gingerbread…. Making cookies out of androids would taste too metallic.

    It means i need to find this cookie cutter…. also Gingerbread should be here any time now, if christmas music is already on the radio, then we should not have to wait much longer.
