He’s a Newfoundlander born and bred, and Bruce Moss will protect his hit song until he dies.
So when The Simpsons made him a sweet cash offer to use The Islander a few months back, he balked at it.
He said the song would have been part of Sunday night’s episode on Canada that took a dig at Newfoundlanders many considered offside.
“I have no qualms about it,” Moss told The St. John’s Morning Show. “I’m not sorry I didn’t license it. And after what I’ve been told about this episode, I’m really happy I didn’t.”
The episode featured a scene with the words “stupid Newfie,” followed by character Ralph Wiggum bashing a stuffed seal pup with a club.
