A.J. Clemente had a rough first and last day as a news anchor for NBC affiliate KFYR-TV in North Dakota, getting fired for saying, “Fucking … shit" on air.

Clemente's slip-up was pretty bad, but local news has long been a source of unintentional comedy, rife with f-bombs and sexual innuendo that have gone viral. Below are some of the most memorable slip-ups in recent history:

3. The ass cream vendor:

4. Top cock:

5. But ... he's gay!
