What is the Difference between a Mandolin and a Lute?

frips, Mandolinist Card (19 Oct 2005)

frips sends me a little silkscreened card of a man playing a mandolin, but I thought it was a man playing a lute. I always guess the mandolin is a lute. Maybe I'm trying to avoid a French pun: "jouer la mandoline." But I doubt it.
