Faux pas

Can someone tell me what the plural of faux pas is? Is it faux pases? Fauxs pas?

Dear Gendy:
"Faux pas" may seem intimidating, but it's actually the simplest of phrases to pluralize because it doesn't change. The plural of "faux pas" is "faux pas." How to pronounce it, well, you'll have to ask those dirty French. Here at TOSC, we shower with a dictionary.
