Remember a few years back, when “Springfield”s (the towns, not the people) across the country were competing for who would get to host the premier of “The Simpsons Movie”? Well, with there being a Springfield, or two, in nearly every state, it was a bit of a debate.
In New Zealand, however, there’s only one Springfield. So, naturally, it got to host the premier of “The Simpsons Movie”. To celebrate, they erected a giant fiberglass donut (frosted pink) and with a bite out of it.
Well, apparently after the movie left town, some of the townspeople thought the donut should leave too. When it didn’t leave town soon enough, though, problems ensued.
Some people lit the donut on fire! Crazy. The lit a sculpture on fire. The funny thing about this is that Springfield only has about 1,000 residents or so. So, it’s not like it’s known for much else.
In the end, the council put up a replacement donut. Disappointingly, this one though is made of an old tire.
