Frames are Fat, Packets are Tall

Sometimes odd things catch my attention. One thing that occurred to me is that packets are typically represented vertically, while frames are diagrammed horizontally. So if anyone ever asks about the differences between a frame and packet, you now have two answers. Technically a frame is layer 2 while a packet is layer 3. Additionally, a frame is short and fat.
