9780060952822: The Simpsons Guide to Springfield

Springfield... Home of the Isotopes, Springfield A&M, and Blinkey, the world's first three-eyed fish Birthplace of the Flaming Moe The site of Krustylu Studios, the awe-inspiring Springfield Gorge, and a world-renowned box factory O Springfield What many wonders you offer up for our consumption Yes, we've all heard of Springfield called the country's "worst city" and "America's crudbucket." But is it all that bad? Well, maybe yes and maybe no--you be the judge This handy, indispensable guide shows you where to go, what to do, and what to see in Springfield--and what shots to get before you visit. Along the way, you'll explore the culture, foods, and beliefs of everyday people and, in essays, photos, and sidebars, peer into the very soul of this dysfunctional, dynamic city From the smoky majesty of the Springfield Tire Yard the crunchy, oily goddess of The Frying Dutchman seafood restaurant, from the swanky shopping of the South Street Squidport to nut-watching opportunities at the Bloodbath and Beyond Gun Shop, this is the guide for everyone planning a trip to the city that Springfield resident Marge Simpson calls, "a part of us all."

Product Description:

Provides descriptions of the town's attractions and annual events.

Review:

The fictitious "Are We There Yet?" guidebook series falsely claims to have covered non-existent towns from Lake Flaccid to Pwagmattasquarmsettport, but even if these other books and grim places existed, this lowdown on Bart's home town would make any list of top holiday non-destinations.

After a night at the Happy Earwig Hotel, trip the light Springtastic to the South Street Squidport, or shove Bart aside and try the Dirt Nap II game at the Noiseland Video Arcade. Catch the latest brainless blockbuster at the Googolplex Theatres, or get highbrow and catch Apu in "Bright Lights, Beef Jerky" at the Springfield Film Festival. Crave tunes? Try King Toot's Music Store, or nab a youth-culture CD at Suicide Notes (formerly Good Vibrations). Get a gravel rattle at Lullabuy$, the cut-rate baby emporium. Wolf a Creamycrunch Chugger at Gulp'n'Blow and dodge the swinging blade at the front door of the It's a Wonderful Knife shop. But please don't doff your radiation suit, and do read the signs: "This park is not copless, so please don't go topless." --Tim Appelo
