More SIMPSONS EXPOSED , Where is the fictional town of SPRINFIELD really located & why so many joke & refrences to BLACK HOLES & STARGATES
.....and do the stargate & black hole refrences have anything to do with the mysterious true location of Springfied ?
I think I can answer the first question , being from the city that I think the fictional city of springfiled in the show is really at amd not where they dinally cliamed it is and also from being a long time fan , ex fan , of the show I've been able to spot Probobly more clues & jokes about St.Louis or Missouri than most people. But why so many jokes about St.louis ? I realize that the long running mystery & debate as to the true location of fictional town of SPRINGFIELD has already been reveleaed in the show and I belive they said its OHIO but I could be wrong. I know it wasn't the place that I think it is but I also think they wernt being honest. I belive it's in one of two states , either Missouri or Illinois. Somewhere near St.louis MO. I found a video on YouTube which shows almost all of the St.louis & Missouri references made on the show through the years , it does leave out more than a few I noticed. Why would they mention such a seemingly obscure city & state as often as they do anyway? As far as I'm aware , none of the Producers or writers or creators are from Missouri or Illnois.
Half of Springfields area code is 636 and the other half is 939. "they do a lot of weird backwards , possibly inside jokes a lot that seem meant to confuse people" 636 is also the real life area code for some cities in Missouri & Illlinois. [/youtube]
