'Simpsons' Springfield Location Revealed

“Simpsons” fans got the answer to a long-debated question about the 22-year-old animated TV show starring Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie: Where the heck is Springfield? The “Anytown, USA” city could be in almost any state of the union, from Maine, to Ohio, to Vermont, to Virginia.
But it turns out, the show’s town is named for (drum roll)............................

I worked in Springfield.

The locals know.

I lived in South Park too!

Lmao

(I'm sure that south park wasn't inspiration for the show though)

"....Springfield, Oregon. Oregon! The creator of the cartoon, Matt Groening, revealed the location in an interview with Smithsonian magazine.
Immediately, the Web exploded, and Matt Groening became a trending topic on Twitter, with comments flying. Eli Braden tweeted, “No wonder we never see them pumping their own gas.” Ubersocial crowed, “Eat my shorts, Illinois!” The Oregonian piled on: “Better luck next time Ohio, Mass., Illinois, Missouri, etc.”
In the interview, the 58-year-old recounted that he had named the town after the TV show “Father Knows Best,” which took place in a town called Springfield. Groening figured it was near where he grew up in Portland, Oregon (which, now that we think about it, was a huge hint)."

RE: 'Simpsons' Springfield Location Revealed
I lived in a quad by the university in Eugene when I worked in Springfield.

Got into a feud with some kids who knew that school shooter(around 1996?)

They were stealing my food and shampoo.

Quads suck.

Anyhow, I was a mechanic at a vw shop, and my boss took all the credit for my work, got envited to camp out at the Country Fair, and to Ken Kesey parties in Springfield.

I was hippie Cinder Ella.
