I ain't too proud to bug.

I grew up in Springfield, Virginia and am a wee bit disappointed at our lack of inclusion in The Simpson's Movie Challenge. A little bit of research shows that Matt Groening (creator) was born in Springfield, Oregon. BUT isn't the plant Homer works in based on the Pentagon which is in Arlington near Springfield, VA? HMM?
We could have had the film premiere at Springfield Mall! Reception at Bennigans! Appetizers at Ruby Tuesdays! Made the food court over with a Simpsons theme! We were not even considered! Are our dollar stores not up to par with the ones in Springfield, Missouri? Don't we have more shoe stores than Springfield, KY? What about our local gangs? They are exceptionally rampant in that mall. It all adds flavor to the premiere, Hollywood!
Not to be overlooked, Springfield Mall has hosted a movie premiere before. It was for me and my friend Tony in our feature film "Deep Impact". Yes, major stars in your backyard, Northern Virginians! Major stars...
I am hurt and disappointed that our little town of Springfield, was not cool enough for you, Homer.
Enjoy your win, Springfield, Vermont. Hmph.

Did Springfield, VA even submit an entry to be considered? Not that the Vermont entry was any good, but it did at least include a giant, rolling donut.

But it's free slurpee day. It should be a day to rejoice!

I was just looking at the entries last week thinking how dumb it was that we weren't included. Springfield NJ, which I drive through on the way to work everyday WAS included though, and they had pretty much the most awful video entry EVER!

No one would be able to attend this event in Springfield, VA because they would all be stuck in northern VA traffic. It would shut down the city. The movie premire is supposed to be a happy event that you can actuall attend and enjoy, not an event that you leave pissed off because you sat in hours and hours of traffic in a area that can't seem to get traffic under control.
