Where do I get these ideas?

The Ginks

A long time ago, in 1978, I made 12,000 flour and salt Ginks for American Greetings Corp.
Here is how you make the Gink dough:2 cups flour1 cup salt1 cup water (more or less).
Start with a little less than one cup water and knead the dough until it is smooth. If it feels dry and crumbly, add water a tablespoon at a time and knead some more.
Bake in the oven at 180′ F for hours and hours.
The Ginks are done when the bottom of their feet is hard like a baked crust.
Each of the faces were hand drawn.
Here’s looking at you, kid!
