Answer:

“Weird” packets as defined by the Jargon File :-)

  1. A breath-of-life packet – An Ethernet packet that contains bootstrap code, periodically sent out from a working computer to infuse the “breath of life” into any computer on the network that has crashed
  2. Christmas tree packet – A packet with every single option set for whatever protocol is in use
  3. Kamikaze packet – same as above
  4. Martian packet – A packet sent on a TCP/IP network with a source address of the test loopback interface
  5. Godzillagram – A network packet that in theory is a broadcast to every machine in the universe
  6. Chernobyl packet – A network packet that induces a broadcast storm and/or network meltdown

    Connect is different types of nastygrams.

    Christmas, kamikaze, martian, Chernobyl packets. Godzillagram. These are okay.

    1st pic = CPR => Kiss of Life => Ping of death? Does this contrivance explain the flame-retardant suit?!

    “cookies” seem to fit for everything but “CPR”.

    That, or it’s some wacky list of disaster types from Sim City games.
