I don't know the spelling on this, it is actually 2 words, a phrase.  I can try to phoneticly spell it, but would like the true spelling to look it up.  It sounds like " few paw".  Can anyone help me out on this?

I think your word is un faux pas.

Pronounced "fo pah"

faux pas- also used in English as Faux pas to mean you messed up- put your foot in it

Translating as "false step"--In English, it has become a prefix adjective for meaning "fake", too, as in "faux fur" (fake fur).
