DOUBLE BONUS QUESTION (Worth two points)
This double bonus question is a 2 parter. Actually a 3 parter as there is a third thing to figure out.

Who said " There is more stupidity on this planet than hydrogen, and it has a longer shelf life".

Who said "A success is a person who wakes up in the morning and goes to sleep at night, and in between, does the things he wants to do".

Take the names of both of these people and put the letters of their names together in an order that gives you two common words. There will be 2 extra letters left. Put the 2 extra letters together in both possible orders and verbalize the letters. It will sound like a popular well known restaurant and the very first letters (2 words) of the menu item it is best known for. So (1) whose quote is the first quote. (2) Whose quote is the second quote and (3) what menu item is it that the extra two letters are the.very first letters of ?

SUMMARY OF BONUS QUESTION CLUES:

1. An abum cover which was material for squares only....That was in reference to Frank Zappa's album cover "Ship too late to save a drowning witch". Which only used straight lines, not a curve in the whole drawing, (material for squares).

2. "Weasels ripped my flesh". That was another album cover of Zappa's.

3. Lay "Lady" Lay & Blonde "On" Blonde were 2 Bob Dylan albums that if you knew the first word you'd know the last word too as the words were repeated in the title.

4. "Carter Or Flo Might Have It". Many decades ago Dylan's first song on the album Desire was about an innocent imprisoned ex-boxer by the name of Rubin "Hurricane" Carter and Flo hinted at the current Hurricane Florence. They might have it, refers to the Dylan song lyric "The answer my friends is blown' in the wind".

It's only natural was a Dylan song verse and also Hurricanes are "natural" disasters.

5. Dylan went to Frank Zappa once, hoping Zappa would produce his upcoming album Infidels.Zappa was not interested and Bob Dylan himself and Mark Knopfler ended up producing it.

6. Sheik Yerbouti was a Frank Zappa album.

Putting the first names Frank & Bob together and jumbling the letters would give you the 2 common words bank & of with the letters r & b left over, which verbalized sounds like Arby and r and b are the first letters of their favorite menu item "roast beef". The guy who does their "we've got the meats" commercials is not James Earl Jones, it's the voice of an actor.
