* In the short story, "Puppet Show", by FredricBrown, an old prospector brings a very ugly Rubber Forehead Alien out of the wilderness on muleback, and the captive is questioned by the military. After a bit of subterfuge, it turns out that the captive is a robot, and the prospector declares himself to be the real alien. The interrogator expresses relief that the master race of the galaxy looks human after all... at which point, the prospector reveals itself to be a robot as well, and the ''mule'' asks what a "master race" is and why its appearance should matter.
