Springfield mural to feature 'The Simpsons'

Turns out Simpsons creator Matt Groening was actually glad his Springfield Oregon lost to Springfield Vermont seven years ago.


  1. Those artists are needed in Springfield Oregon! Springfield Vermont continues to fail in everything except drugs per capita and dole monies per capita. Springfield, Vermont has now even failed in being the home of Bart Simpson. Hopefully that doesn't cause the failure of the Jenny Wren Cafe because they have believed in a false god, Bart Simpson. Maybe this would be a good time to change the name of the cafe since the name appears to be stolen from Paul McCartney. I bet they are infringing on his copyright.

  2. Perhaps you could try looking at things from a different perspective. Defeatist and negative observations can be somewhat helpful, but are usually very wearing for the self and others.
    By the way, the term 'Jenny Wren' is an old one (from the 1640's) used to describe the female of particular species (donkey, turkey, and in this case, wren). Paul McCartney borrowed the term for his song, just as others have done over the years.
    I'm sure the Jenny Wren Cafe' will continue to be successful. Do go try one of their delicious menu offerings soon!

    1. Shouldn't you be out littering the town with Bart Simpson idolatry paraphernalia?

    2. You cut and pasted that, didn't you......?

  3. Congrats to Springfield Oregon, a beautiful town and a nice standard of living.

  4. Are those costumes or a couple of the real people roaming the corners of downtown Springfield ?

  5. Who are the Simpson's?

  6. Springfield, OR has enough sense to not want to be represented by the Simpsons....

    1. This article is about Oregon (Home of the Simpsons) not about Vermont.

  7. If someone would be so kind as to photoshop out Matt Groening's head and replace it with Bob Forguites, the photo could be recaptioned as "Bob Forguites and his campaign team prepare for upcoming state elections."

  8. Second attempt to post this comment: The photo provided could easily be photoshopped to replace Matt Groenig's head with Bob Forguites, then recaptioned to read "Bob Forguites and campaign team prepare for his 2014 campaign for state legislature."


Please keep your comments polite and on-topic. No profanity
