  Faux Pas - WikiFur, the furry encyclopedia
Faux Pas (pronounced "fox paws") is a comic strip created by Robert and Margaret Carspecken of RandM Creative Endeavors.
The name is a play on the French phrase faux pas, a social blunder (literally, false step), reflecting the demeanor of the strip's characters.
Faux Pas originally appeared in newspaper spot illustrations and one-panel gags in Boulder, Colorado in the late 1970's.

  Faux pas - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A faux pas, (IPA /ˌfoʊˈpɑː/, plural: faux pas /ˌfoʊˈpɑː(z)/) (French for false step) is a violation of accepted, although unwritten, social rules.
Faux pas vary widely from culture to culture and what is considered good manners in one culture can be considered a faux pas in another.
If one uses faux pas with the English meaning in France, people might think it was a slight grammatical mistake with faut pas, the colloquial pronunciation of il ne faut pas, meaning must not in English.

A Faux Pas (originating from the French 'Don't fuck', pronounced foxed pass) is a violation of an accepted, although unwritten rule.
These vary widely from location to location; an activity that passes for good manners in one culture can often be considered a faux pas in another.
For example, while in Canada it is considered a faux pas not to bring a stuffed and dressed bear to a dinner party where the host or hosts are wearing more expensive shoes than yourself, in Japan this very same act usually leads to death at the hands of angry mob justice.

Usually Faux Pas are written as a response to some idiotic interpretation of an Italian dish which seemed, in the mind of the chef/cook who created it, to be calling out to be recreated.
A Faux Pas within a Faux Pas is the illustration presenting the technique for peeling plum tomatoes.
Generally speaking, Faux Pas are mistakes, or as defined in Webster's..."False remark; A social blunder; error in etiquette: Tactless act or remark..." We enlarge upon this definition to include a tactless food preparation act as a social blunder in that it effects that part of society interested in authentic Italian foods.

 Faux mitzvah is faux pas
Recently I saw a CNBC news report about the latest craze: "The Faux Mitzvah," a trendy event in which boys and girls of traditional bar/bat mitzvah age, but of varying faiths and cul-tures, throw parties costing tens of thousands of dollars and incor-porating reliable standbys of Judaism like slicing the challah and candle-lighting.
My outrage may alarm many, and I may be taking it to its extreme, but we have seen too much assimilation result in a lessening of the basic tenets of Judaism.
According the Wall Street Journal, one New York father threw a "fl mitzvah" party for his daughter to celebrate her African-American culture; his invitation included a disclaimer explaining that he hoped he was not offending anyone.

 Welcome to the Faux Like A Pro Message Board - Enjoy painting and decorating your home with wall and furniture paint ...
Because of all of the variables in using pre-mixed glazes and base coats we have always mixed our own basecoats and faux finishing solutions using usually Pratt and Lambert accolade base 1 (white pigmented base paint for light colors) and base 3 (clear base paint for dark colors), and tinted them ourselves.
In reference to a question posted, yes, I went through the paint charts and picked two colors for the base coat that I felt would work and we were doing "Spot boards" directly on the wall.
I was initially upset about losing out on the faux part of that, although it just added more work for the rest of the crew, and since this is a family owned business with my father, two brothers and I, we try not to keep track of who brings in what business.
