A news anchor for an ABC affiliate in St. Paul, Minnesota, tried his damnedest not to say the word "fag" before reporting on this year's Twin Cities Gay Pride Festival, but ended up saying it anyway.

Bill Lunn of KSTP-TV made the worst case scenario slip while stumbling over the phrase "I pledge allegiance to the flag" just before introducing the pride parade story.

"Haha... unfortunate slip of the tongue. Getting razzed at work a bit," Lunn later Tweeted. "4 years and they couldn't get me on the KSTP blooper reel. I guess they've got me now."
