Last week's challenge Think of two five-letter synonyms for “stupid person.” One starts with D, and the other starts with I.

WAMC's Ian Pickus and resident quizzer Mike Nothnagel are all about the Brians this week.
Last week's challenge Gold is the traditional gift for a 50th anniversary, so here's a challenge inspired by that: Think of a 5-letter word beginning with P that describes something flat. Add AU (as in the chemical symbol for gold) to the end of this word, and you'll get another word that describes something flat. What are the words?
