Hardly. Could be anyone. There are no strong resemblance between this man and Hermes. I am not saying it is impossible for him to be, but this is speculative at best. --SvipTalk 13:22, 11 December 2008 (UTC)

Hints of Cannabis(Marijuana) use?[edit]

In Bendin in the wind, when Fry pulled a bong (the device that let's you speed/slow the passage of time)from under the seat of the VW van, Hermes reacted in shock. In Bender shouldn't be on TV, Dwight found one of his blunts(marijuana rolled into a cigar), saying "That's not a cigar... and it's NOT mine!" Also, at the Olympics, Hermes mentioned the Jamaican team was held up at the airport for certain interests.

His wife also says at Fry's funeral (though technically within a dream sequence) "Can't you go anywhere without lightin' something up?" although in HHRhGB, he says he's going to relax the traditional Jamaican way: A glass of warm milk. They hint quite a bit, but they never come right out and say it. So at best, we could only say that he may or may not own something that resembles but is not a cigar, likes lighting unspecified things up, and relaxes with warm milk. --Buddy 17:57, 23 June 2010 (CEST)

Honestly, I believe that the last few arguments are vague. "Other interests" could be anything. However, there is new evidence that Hermes is a pothead:

A deleted scene in "Overclockwise" has Hermes heavily relating to Bender's statement that "over clocking is a marvelous drug that makes time stand still."

Hermes also asks for a "Shirley Hemple" in "The Devil's Hands are Idle Playthings", and gains a large interest in Thomas Jefferson's head during "All The President's Heads" when Thomas Jefferson recalls smoking six feet of rope a day. Later, Hermes hollers, "Thomas Jefferson, did you sell me some bad rope?" after going back in time.
