Fourteen Springfields Vie for Simpsons Movie Premiere


Start your voting over at USA TODAY for your favorite Springfield.

My new hometown, Springfield, Missouri, is in the running, and the video created with the blessing of the city’s fathers and mothers for you to vote on is pretty good. I think it may take the doughnut for the most people involved, and Springfield, Missouri, deserves the premiere as much as any other Springfield.

However, please don’t revoke my citizenship, but those folks down in Tennessee’s Springfield have the funniest one, complete with cops eating doughnuts and bungled lines. I couldn’t stand to watch all of the videos because some were just too painful. And that man in the Louisiana video who let them paint his head yellow. What was he thinking?

I am so excited to watch these videos!

I read about the contest and apparently the Oregon people were mad that they even had to participate. They always thought it went without question that they were the Springfield of the Simpsons because Matt Groening lived or grew up(can't remember which) by it.

I think Groening was pretty clever to pick just a common town name as Springfield. It was fun to waste a few minutes this morning watching some of the creative work. I hope this Springfield has a shot.
