Vice & Vise

With a C – a habit deemed inappropriate or immoral, often used to describe gambling, drinking, or sexual depravity (or as I like to call it: Tuesday).
With an S – a clamping tool used to hold an object still while it is worked upon.

  2. A roach clip, perhaps? Clearly, I should have thought this one through more. :)

  3. What about vice president and vice versa?

  4. Well, yes, I suppose. I do struggle with what level of comprehensiveness I'm willing to accept here. Sometimes I decide a usage isn't worth mentioning. Sometimes I decide a usage derivative of a usage I include. And sometimes things fall through the cracks...
