Sure, it's a little PR stunt to promote the Simpson's movie, but I thought it was funny.

Springfield, Ill., has its own power plant, run by a man who looks a lot like Mr. Burns, head of the nuclear plant on "The Simpsons," said Tim Farley, executive director of the Illinois' Springfield Convention and Visitors' Bureau. The high school is identical and the city is not far from Shelbyville, the town next to Homer Simpson's Springfield, he said.

Every Springfield in the nation was invited to take part, submitting a three- to five-minute video showcasing their towns. Some had a cow over the idea.

Springfield, Minn., declined, saying it was nothing like the dysfunctional town on the TV show.

Uppity Minnesotans.

I'd like to drive over to Springfield and try to find their sorely lacking sense of humor if I only knew where the hell it was in this great State.

No way it is in Vermont.  I always thought Kentucky or Tennessee.

The Outlet Mall in Ogdenville is an obvious reference to Ogden, Utah, about 40 miles north of Salt Lake City. The Simpsons are quite clearly from Utah.
