My personal favorite is Welcome to the United States, where Zappa sets into music the form that visitors to the USA must fill out to pass US immigration.

Did Zappa create the "ship coming too late to save a drowning witch" drawing? I knew that one as a kid.
This drawing is from Roger Price's book "Droodles", a form of artwork he created. One could describe these humorous sketches and the accompanying explanations as thinking outside the box, well before that term was coined.
too late my friend, the good Lord already "got" Frank Zappa
Someone should tell Bob. No wait ! Dont tell Bob. I will still take the contract.
I just googled Franky, and found he died surrounded by his wife and kids. Now if I dieded surrounded by my ex-wifes and kids, I would demand a murder investigation. Maybe he was more liked than I am...
No really ...I was watching a documentary on Lithuania and they said , presenting a romanisk pole with a bust of Frank Zappa on the top, as the only monumant to a rock star. That doesnt sound right, maybe they mean the only government financed one. Anyway, there it was...Frank Zappa immortalised.
