    Default The Official Faux Pas Thread

    Jennifer and I went to a baby shower yesterday. During the course of conversation, it came out that a PF Chang's has opened near our house. I started laughing, not quite to myself but certainly not loudly. Jennifer thought I was happy because I like PF Chang's, but in reality, I was laughing at the memory of one of this past season of South Park's best episodes, "The China Probrem." I told her as such and she launched into a Cartman impersonation. "What are the plans to invade America? I forgot." I corrected her pronunciation, saying, "No, no, it's, 'What are the prans to invade Amelica?' I forgot.'" And she agreed with my correction and we laughed heartily.

    Then I turned around and saw the lone Korean woman at the shower struggling to refrain from calling us assholes in front of the kids.

    Never talk about weird stories you heard about people in your social circle's sex lives while standing in front of an elevator. The doors might open and someone you know might be standing there... Yeah...

    When we were kids, my brother and I were on a shuttle with our parents at the Grand Canyon. My brother, being a precocious youngster, pointed at a severely obese man and asked rather loudly, "Mom, why is that man so fat?"

    Another time, after having spoke with my teenage neighbors and them telling me about their sexual exploits, I asked loudly in a public place, "Do you think Big Mike really banged his girlfriend?"

    to this day I laugh about a day in high school when a friend expressed his relief that he hasn't made a fox pass.

    Did you ever see that episode of The Daily Show in which one of the correspondents did an interview with, like, the mayor of some small town, and the mayor pronounced the word "fox paw"? The correspondent asked him to repeat the word and he did so numerous times, proud of knowing such a highfalutin word. I searched for it on the Daily Show site and YouTube but wasn't able to find it.

    C'mon, people. Everyone says stupid shit that they immediately regret in public. Quit holding out.

    it took us a moment to figure out what he meant. so he then got the impression we didn't know the phrase 'faux pas'. then in an instant it all became clear. and fucking hilarious.

    I think I'd have died. I'd have literally died. I would actually have laughed myself right to death, there and then. I'd start chuckling, it would build into a hearty laugh, and then to a graceless, helpless guffaw, until finally, with a sound like ripping cotton, something would rupture, and I'd die in a painful mess of spluttering organ failure.

    And even then, even as the life bled right out of me and my lungs started to fill, the last thought to run through my dying brain would be "Fox Pass.

    Oh my God.

    Oh my fucking God, Fox Pass."

    Its like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, if you put X amount of monkeys in a room with a typewriter and ask them to give you Shakespeare 99% of them will fling their shit at you while the other 1% will masturbate in the corner.

    The husband and I have giggled over the "her left eye is lazy" line in "Nicotine and Gravy" in front of not one, but TWO friends with lazy eyes. They both wore glasses to fix it, so we had no idea. Awkward...

    Oh, and when I worked for a Wells Fargo inside a grocery store, another teller and I were talking about the tacky outfit of a girl who was shopping. We happened to be helping her friend at the time. I am the master of foot-in-mouth.
    My name is Becca. Hi.

    Facebook, yo.

    LOL!!!!


    I generally try to make sure that when I'm talking shit, that person or anyone of that person's spies aren't around me. Ever since highschool people have always loved coming to me to vent or to talk smack about someone. I'm good at keeping secrets, but sometimes I just have to tell my best friend if it's something particularly juicy. She knows to keep it to herself, and that's why I luv her!

    Also, the biggest faux pas of all (and I can't believe no one mentioned it) is NEVER WEAR WHITE AFTER LABOR DAY

    (never mix stripes with plaid either)

    Sophomore year of high school, we're in history class and its towards the end of the school year. Its a really nice day out and I see people leaving for co-op. meanwhile, the teacher is becoming the person on the phone in cartoons. wah wah wah wah. Im looking outside and thinking, man, i wanna get the hell out of here, its so nice out and im just stuck in here for like another two hours. "this sucks." except, that last part was out loud. everyone turns and looks at me and im looking at them like, oh fuck. some people laugh a little and the teacher is fucking pissed. "what did you say?!" uh, um...."go to the office right now!!" i got out of there, but just to go to in school.

    i still laugh at this.

    I'm wearing lacey white doc boots today.

    I pretty much embarrass myself at any and all social interactions. For a while I pronounced the word awry as "aw-ree" instead of "a-RYE," and Jacob still brings that up. My brother did it too so I didn't feel so bad after that. Once at Kohl's we were looking at these beach-type Barbie dolls, and I remember referring to the tanner ones as "colored" for some reason (not even thinking of the racial significance of the word, I was just grasping for "tan" I guess), and Jacob wouldn't speak to me for a couple hours he was so embarrassed of me.
