    Default Where's the pun here?

    I was reading an article and I came across such a sentence -
    We all sin, but is any sin separable from the sinner, or vice-versa (no pun intended!)?
    This bit caught me out. What pun does the author mean?

    The word "vice" is sometimes used to describe sinful behavior such as gambling, fornication, excessive alcohol use, drug use, etc.
