Marge Simpson was an Iron Ranger?!!

Mind. Blown.

Today’s “Eh?” column in the Duluth News Tribune discusses the obituary for the mother of Matt Groening, creator of the iconic and influential TV show “The Simpsons.” Simpsons fans learned a couple years ago that the “real Springfield” was Springfield, Oregon, near where Groening grew up. He has also revealed that Marge Simpson was based in part on his mother, Margaret, who passed away April 22.

But did you know that “real Marge Simpson” Margaret Groening was born in Chisholm? I did not. This means that Marge Simpson was from the Iron Range and I am calling that a Win.

My God, her maiden name was WIGGUM! WIGGUM!
