I agree also it is in Kentucky b/c of theose 2 episodes.

Remember the episode about the Springfield Isotopes moving to Albuquerque where Homer went on the hunger strike? Albuquerque, my city, is having a contest over the internet to name the new Albuquerque minor league baseball team. A group of my friends and also simpsons fans are trying to get the name "Albuquerque Isotopes" just for the coolness factor.

when homer is wrongfully accused of sexual harassment by the babysitter and the TV show makes him look guilty, at the end when the show appologizes and runs a list really fast, here is what it says:

- "Peoples' Choice Awards" _is_ America's greatest honor.
- Styrofoam is not made from kittens.
- The UFO was a paper plate.
- The nerds on the Internet are not geeks.
- The word "cheese" is not funny in and of itself.
- The older Flanders boy is Todd, not Rod.
- Lyndon Johnson did not provide the voice of Yosemite Sam.
- If you are reading this, you have no life.
- Roy Rogers was not buried in his horse.
- The other UFO was an upside down salad spinner.
- Our universities are not "hotbeds" of anything.
- Mr. Dershowitz did not literally have four eyes.
- Our viewers are not pathetic sexless food tubes.
- Audrey Hepburn never weighed 400 pounds.
- The "Cheers" gang is not a real gang.
- Salt water does not chase the thirsties away.
- Licking an electrical outlet will not turn you into a Mighty Morphin Power Ranger.
- Cats do not eventually turn into dogs.
- Bullets do not bounce off of fat guys.
- Recycling does not deplete the ozone.
- Everything is 10% fruit juice.
- The flesh eating virus does not hide in ice cream.
- Janet Reno is evil.
- V8 juice is not 1/8 gasoline.
- Ted Koppel is a robot.
- Women aren't from Venus and men aren't form Mars.
- Fleiss does floss.
- Quayle is familiar with common bathroom procedures.
- Bart is bad to the bone.
- Godfry Jones' wife is cheating on him.
- The Beatles haven't reunited to enter kick boxing competitions.
- The "Bug" on your TV screen can see into your home.
- Everyone on TV is better than you.
- The people who are writing this have no life.

Well since this was brought back to the top I thought I would throw in an update, it is now official the new baseball team in albuquerque is named the Albuquerque Isotopes. Pretty cool huh? The logo isnt all that bad either although it isnt the same as the Simpsons or related for that matter.

Leenjen, thanks for posting those. Havent actually read what they were untill now.

no prob. another cool thing to try is in the episode where bart and milhouse run the comic book store.

at the part of the episode where Bart and Millhouse are closing up shop. Turn on the closed captions. Millhouse says something like "I finished stocking the shelves" or something like that. But on the closed captions it says "I finished marking down the South Park stuff." Then Bart says "Better mark it down again. Keep marking it down until it sells."

there are a couple episodes like that where the closed caption says something different. in the earlier episodes, they used to make fun of Ren & Stimpy

The creators and writers of the simpsons are simply telling us that Springfield is anytown USA. It doesn't have a certain location. It's just a town that they came up with that has different personalities of towns mixed into one. They make fun of various locations in the United States. For instance Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, and Arizona are the only four states that you can step in at the same time. So they call it four corners. In one Simpsons episode they have it where you can step in 5 states at one time. That doesn't mean that the Simpsons is loacted in one of those states. Now that I come to think of it, maybe the 5th state is there imaginary or anytown USA town. I'm a pretty good fan of the Simpsons but I'm not very hardcore where I go and try and find all the different details out about the Simpsons but I'm just giving you what many people on this board call it (my .02 cents)

Well my favorite quote is "Alcohol, the cause and solution of all of life's problems". There are so many other ones that are great too, but that one has to be the best. Its just funny how many people refer to it.

Even the stories are slightly starting to dry up, they have no plans to end them- yet. There was an episode a couple of months ago where they laughed at critics and said" We have stories for years- you will never stop the Simpsons!" :)

The Comic Guy Heart Attach episode was on this evening, so I cut on the captioning. That part about SouthPark was funny as balls! The captioning is real quick and I prolly wouldn't have noticed if I hadn't been watching for it.

Thanks for the tip leenjen!
