Page 31 of the SwanCon XV Program Book has the running head of ‘Don’t worry, Get Stuffed is not eligible’. Partway down the page on the right is a line drawing of a bipedal figure in what can best be described as a cross between futuristic armour and a superhero costume; said figure has the head of Daffy Duck and is holding a raygun.
