Groundskeeper WillieCivic officials at two Scottish cities are fighting over the home town of Simpsons character Groundskeeper Willie. Both Glasgow and Aberdeen believe he hails from their city.

Glasgow City Council have put Willie in their online hall of fame alongside the likes of Billy Connolly and Lulu. In the Season 8 episode, Simpson-califragilisticexpiala (Annoyed Grunt) cious, Willie reminisces about Shary Bobbins: Then she got her eyesight back. Suddenly the ugliest man in Glasgow wasn't good enough for her!
