What do you do with a giant yellow hand that’s holding a big pink doughnut?

That’s the question these days in Springfield, the Vermont town that basked in the spotlight of fame after winning a contest associated with "The Simpsons Movie."

The doughnut statue, which now stands in the square in front of the Springfield Theater, was autographed by "Simpsons" creator Matt Groening and other dignitaries.

But with cold weather on the way, officials are trying to find a permanent place for the statue.

Also looking for a home: a larger-than-life sculpture of The Simpsons – Homer, Marge, Lisa, Bart and Maggie sitting on a couch in the Springfield Movie Theater.

Patty Chaffee, the executive vice president at the Springfield Chamber of Commerce, says she has looked at a few potential locations but says none has been chosen. She hopes to find a "semi-public" place for the sculptures.
