Springfield, Oregon. Who would have though it?

Who would have thought that Matt Groening would reveal the answer to the long running question of which state Springfield is in and that Oregon would have been the inspiration?

The Simpson’s creator revealed to Smithsonian magazine that he was inspired by the television show “Father Knows Best,” which was set in a town called Springfield.

The guessing game can now be put to bed and it won’t take long for  residents of the Oregon Springfield to capitalise on it one would think.

The town has a population of only 60,000, so business will be guaranteed if someone sets up a Kwik-E-Mart, or a Moes and makes a video that goes viral and you will have Simpson fans flocking to it.

Maybe even a Praiseland with some leaking gas would be an idea too. It worked for Ned Flanders.
