Woo-Hoo! Harry Shearer’s Ba-Diddly-Ack on The Simpsons



Entertainment Weekly reports that the vocally varied voice-over virtuoso has signed a new deal akin to that of his costars. So it was a hardball negotioating tactic after all – I’m proud to say that unlike many other sites, we always speculated it was such.

And in anticipation of the obvious, inevitable “But The Simpsons sucks anyway!” comments – no matter where you stand, it would indisputably suck more without Shearer. So pish posh to you.
