We don't care where they live, leave our forum alone!!!

Hello. This is my first thread, a scary moment

As students, we are legally obliged to watch the Simpsons as often as possible. So does anyone know which state Springfield is in? Annoying new episodes make a big thing that if you follow the clues you can work it out. This is utter geekery but unleash your inner Prof. Frink and let's have a crack at it.



EDIT:
Look, you fucking morons who keep finding this thread from google or wherever. When you couldn't find a reply button did you not consider that the thread might be locked??!?!? Why then did you proceed to press the New Thread button? Stop creating new threads to give us your boring reasons why the simpsons come from your favourite state. The sad thing is you even had to make the effort to create a profile before you could post! Are you really that lonely? We don't give a shit! And if you do it again we'll break your fucking legs! Get it?

NO WAY!

what episode is that from alan?
i always thought that the simpsons lived in illinois, because springfield is the capitol of illinois! we also have a shelbyville, i think.





this could be love, or nothing at all.

Isn't Springfield supposed to be a town in most states? And that's why they set the Simpsons there as it's so normal? Or am I being blonde now?

i noticed once that you can figure it out. there's a town they refer to called ogdenville...in one episode lisa's band gets beaten by the ogdenville band at the state fair because ogdenville cheat and use glowsticks - so springfield must be in the same state as ogdenville. in the monorail one, the guy selling them the monorail shows them a map of other places they've built them and ogdenville is on the map. so you could figure it out from that if you really wanted to.

i'll fuck off now.

In trying to answer this question I found out that radio stations starting with K are West of the Mississippi. If they start with a W they are East. Springfield has KBBL (KBBL's gonna give me something stupid).

Hang on, KROC's in Florida isn't it? Surely that's East of the Mississippi. My interesting fact may be entirely wrong.

i thought that no one knew, including the creators and that was the point?! hence the jokes like al referred to, cos then it gets all us geeks who try to figure it out...

It was my lab Christmas party last night and my head is absolutely stinkin' today. I can't believe I drank the whole thing.

Simpsons definitely isn't as good as it used to be (the new Episodes on Sky like the one where they go to Brazil are really crap). Too many celebrities, not enough jokes. Futurama was really good though, esspecially Bender for great lines like "Take that Beathoven, you deaf bastard!" That's what cartoons were invented for.

There are a few states you can rule out. They went on holiday in Florida (Spring Break!) so they probably don't live there. I think it's at the end of that episode they get banned from every state except two but one of those smells leaving only North Dakota (I think). Hmm...this is perhaps not such a good idea as I thought it would be.

Currently listening to: November Rain. There is no saving me.

The Simpsons don't live in any state! They're a cartoon! And even if they were supposed to live in a particular state, they wouldn't! Because they're a cartoon!

I just think it's funny because if the writers had made it possible to determine which state it was set in then someone, somewhere would have worked it out by now (there are much sadder people than us on the net, believe me!) - and it would have spread around the net, and we wouldn't be arguing about it now...
