'F bomb' anchor now serving up drinks in Del.

Remember the television anchor who suddenly made national news himself earlier this year after uttering the "F" word his first day on the job?

He's now serving up Long Island Iced Teas at a beach bar in Delaware.

The Cape Gazette interviewed A.J. Clemente, 24, about the loss of his job earlier this year and his current summer working at Que Pasa, a Mexican restaurant at Lighthouse Cove in Dewey Beach.

Clemente was fired in April after a profanity laced faux pas his first day on the job as an anchor for North Dakota NBC affiliate KFYR. Clemente didn't realize he was on the air and that his microphone was on when he uttered a string of curses, including an f-bomb, as his co-anchor, Van Tieu, was introducing him to viewers.

“That couldn’t have gone any worse!” Clemente tweeted afterward.

Clemente was fired by station management the same day. But a video of his profane debut went viral and Clemente found himself on national talk shows.

He's now working his third summer at Que Pasa and hopes to look for a job in the fall.
