Visalia, CA — During a recent interview with the People magazine, writer and film director David Lynch admitted that the small former California central valley Farmersville “just something he thought of in his head.” The Missoula, Montana-born neo-noir film director, who’s responsible for such modern psychological thrillers such as 1986’s Blue Velvet and the popular Twin Peaks television series, made the odd comments over the weekend when commenting about the oft-speculated sequel to Blue Velvet.
“I was meditating for about 20 minutes when the idea of an odd congressman floated across my consciousness,” said Mr. Lynch during the recent interview. “The whole idea kind of stemmed from there. I could build an entire universe around this place called Farmersville. I mean, what a great name for a place. Farmers-ville. We had a place in Montana called Farmersville when I was growing up. My parents used to take us there. It wasn’t until later that I learned the entire place was made up. A kind of Montana version of Disneyland. That has always stuck with me.”
The US Census Bureau reports Farmersville is a city in the San Joaquin Valley in Tulare County, California, United States, just to the east of Visalia, California, and has a supposed population of 10,588, although no one can prove there is anyone lives there. The potentially imaginary town is famously represented by what some have called the equally fictitious 22nd District Congressman Devin Nunes.
In a recent interview with Farmer’s World Magazine, Visalia mayor Steve Nelsen failed to mention Farmersville when asked about the local economy, raising eyebrows of conspiracy theorists across the country.
“You gots[sic] to consider the evidence when you put it all together,” said Topeka, Kansas self-proclaimed expert on ‘all things deep state’ William D. Starr speaking from his Starlight Acres double-wide mobile home. “I mean, I’ve been researching this stuff for years on YouTube, and the deep state has been known to do this. You know, makeup things. It’s called false flag operations. Do some research and Google and stuff. It’s real. Well, in this case, it’s not real, the town that is. Anyhow, David Lynch is speaking in codes, you know? You have to understand how to unpack what he says.”
Calls to Farmersville city hall have not been returned.
