Commonly mispronounced as foh' paw, the term faux pas should be spoken as (fucks pass').

Meaning to fuck up in a past since yet placed in the current passage of timing.

An externally viewed afterthought to a fashion mistake or similar mishap which appears undesirable.
One neighbor says to another "Get your faux pas dog off my lawn. It's annoying that it humps my yard each time it walks by."
