Simpsons Rumor

Consider this post to be fact-free and only a retelling of a rumor going around.

Supposedly the contest for the honor of being the official Springfield of The Simpsons has come down to Springfield, Missouri and Springfield, Illinois. If Springfield, Illinois is chosen, the site of the premier of The Simpsons movie will be at the Showplace 12 on Wabash.

Like I said, it’s all just local rumor.

But for what it’s worth, here’s a revealing look at our alleged competition.

I also heard a rumor that the tiny town of Springfield, Kentucky, has already been decided upon.

Personally, if Springfield, Illinois doesn't get it, my next choice would be Springfield, MO.
