Barbados Slim is a limboist from Barbados and the winner of the 3004 Olympics. He was Hermes' rival when Hermes was a limboist as well, and was once married to LaBarbara, but they got divorced.


Barbados Slim has a rivalry with Hermes because he is Hermes' equal in limboing contests and because he was once married to his wife LaBarbara. Barbados also said he is used to unzipping a woman's frock. Slim is confident, perhaps overly so, in his limboing abilities and is often condescending to Hermes.


In 3007, when Hermes lost his body, LaBarbara left him and returned to Barbados, taking Dwight with her. But, once Hermes recovered his body, she came back to him. [BBS] Barbados Slim later attended Planet Express's 100th-delivery party. [6ACV12]
