Mad Men actor and a good-looking former St. Louisan, Jon Hamm, hosted Saturday Night Live last night, and slipped in that most-telling of St. Louis question: "Where'd you go to high school?" during a sketch on the show.

Was the question a subtle nod to his hometown? We think so. Combined with his commercial endorsement for the St. Louis Blues, you'd almost think Hamm was homesick.

Tip 'o the cap to St. Louis blogger Mike Flynn of Punching Kitty for this excellent find.
