Fact of the Day: The Simpsons Oregon

In the TV series, The Simpsons, their hometown of Springfield is located in an unknown state and the show's writers have given contradictory "clues" of where its located in America. While the fictional is based on many things, Matt Groening says it's officially named after the Springfield in his home-state of Oregon.

  4. I was vaguely aware that Groening was from Oregon, but did not know there was a Springfield there.

  5. I always imagined them being more from the Midwest, not the PNW.

  6. Well that was something I didn't know but now I am aware of why so many simpletons there are in the Springfields of the USA.
    There is - TO MY ABSOLUTE HORROR - a suburb close to where I now live at Terrigal, (on the beach), NSW.
    I went to have a look - it is like Tennessee HILL BILLY country!
    Weirdos reign supreme!
