    So you wanted some Pumpkin Spice Spam? Too late.

    Before I could even get this blog posted, Hormel Foods sold out of its limited-edition Pumpkin Spice Spam.

    Yes, that’s right; Hormel infused its famous canned meat brand with the flavor that has become an autumn cliché.

    Hormel announced early Monday morning that it was selling a limited quantity of pumpkin-spice Spam on Walmart.com and its trademarked Spam.com. The $8.98 two-packs sold out in less than seven hours, the Austin, Minn. based food company said.

    Pumpkin spice is perhaps best known as a flavor-and-scent profile applied to lattes, but over the last decade or so has been added to seemingly endless array of consumer products, including Cheerios. The launch of pumpkin spice products now signal the start of fall as much as turning leaves, light jackets and back-to-school sales.

    The company has no plans to make more of the Pumpkin Spice Spam.

    "Our fans continue to amaze us with their passion for the Spam brand," said Brian Lillis, senior brand manager at Hormel Foods. "At this time, we do not have any plans for more Spam Pumpkin Spice products, but we're always keeping our eye on new flavors or varieties that will resonate with our fans."

    The last time Hormel launched a new variety was in 2014 with its Spam Teriyaki.

    And while the shelf-stable meat may be thought of by some as a tired, old brand, Spam has been enjoying a resurgence in trendy popularity in recent years. For instance, Spam cocktails and Spam fries appeared in London three years ago.

    SHOPLIFTING SUSPECT IN FLORIDA CAUGHT RIDING BICYCLE TOPLESS

    A woman accused of shoplifting was caught last week riding a bicycle topless.

    A cashier at Surfside Outfitters on Okaloosa Island called police to report a woman had come into the store Thursday evening before 7p.m., shoved a pair of flip flops and a t-shirt into her bag and walked out without paying.

    According to the Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office (OCSO), deputies pursuing the call spotted 32-year-old Courtney Elizabeth Backes riding topless down the center of Highway 98. When he pulled alongside Backes and told her to stop, she allegedly replied, "Make me."


    The deputy got in front of Backes and stopped her as she attempted to pedal past him, reports WEAR Channel 3.

    Courtney Elizabeth Backes was charged with retail theft and resisting arrest without violence.OKALOOSA COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE
    Backes, who has no known local address, was charged with retail theft and resisting arrest without violence. The OCSO says it received numerous calls that afternoon about a woman with no shirt on riding a bike erratically down the highway.

    While Backeswas not charged with indecent exposure, Florida law does prohibit the displaying "sexual organs" in public "except in any place provided or set apart for that purpose." It also bans nudity "on the private premises of another, or so near thereto as to be seen from such private premises, in a vulgar or indecent manner."


    The statute stipulates that it doesn't not include a mother breastfeeding her baby.

    But the law may not stay on the books for long: Last week, the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals struck down a topless ban in Ft. Collins, Colorado, after two women sued the city for the right to bear their breasts in public.

    The ruling could make it legal for women to go topless in Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, New Mexico, Kansas, and Oklahoma, which fall under the 10th Circuit's jurisdiction.


    The suit was brought by Brit Hoagland and Samantha Six, part of the #FreeTheNipple social media campaign. The pair argued that, since men can take their shirts off in public, a ban on female toplessness was discriminatory.

    "Everybody should be able to be comfortable on a hot day and if that means taking their shirt off, so be it," Hoagland told KGUN. "No matter how you look, you should have the same freedom at the person next to you. And it's also about equality. Addressing small parts of inequality can make a big difference in how people are treated on a day to day basis, and I thought free the nipple was just one small step closer to how it should be."

    Naked couple fall to deaths during balcony sex romp


    A naked couple fell to their deaths while having sex on a third-floor balcony after a house party in Ecuador, according to a report Friday.

    The woman, a 28-year-old mother, and her 35-year-old lover were locked in a passionate embrace when they slipped over the edge — and plunged onto the terrace below, twnews.co.uk reports.

    The tragic pair was discovered by a neighbor in the Carapungo district of Quito, who heard a loud crash and rushed outside to investigate, according to the outlet.

    A heartbroken relative of the unnamed woman said she was the mother of an 8-year-old girl and that the fall happened not long after she threw a graduation party at her home.

    Detectives are investigating the circumstances, said Calderon Police District Operations Chief Cristhian Trujillo.

    Local media reports said the couple wasn’t paying attention to the height of the balcony wall and toppled over it while having sex.
