Simpsons’ Mystery Solved

Springfield

A decades old mystery has finally been solved: where is Springfield, home of the Simspsons?

The admission came in an interview with Smithsonian Magazine that was published online Tuesday.

Groening says he was inspired by the televisions show “Father Knows Best,” which took place in a place called Springfield. Springfield, Ore., is 100 miles south of Groening’s hometown of Portland.

Groening says he has long given fake answers when asked about the Simpsons’ hometown.

So there you have it! Of course that means that lamer Shelbyville is ALSO in Oregon, right?
