Didn't the Simpson's take a short bus ride to Branson once? But ended up in Bronson by mistake first and every one there looked like charles bronson. There is a Branson MO. That settles it

I thought the creators just clarified this a while ago and said it was Springfield, Virginia?

We make Budweiser (Bud) in St Louis MO. In the Springfield of the Simpson's they make Duff which sounds like bud backwards. And it sponsors every sports event

Arbitrary categories to say the least. Furthermore "correlation does not equal causation"...having many comic book stores doesn't matter, you just need 1. I lived in Springfield, OR...it feels more simaler in size and culture than Springfield, MO.
