Comedian Rob Riggle — a Shawnee Mission South graduate who will attend the Big Slick Celebrity Weekend in Kansas City next month — wore a T-shirt that might have looked familiar to some Kansas Citians during an appearance on the Conan O'Brien's TBS late-night show last week.

The actor, who has starred in movies such as "The Hangover," "Stepbrothers" and "21 Jump Street," wore a Trailwood Elementary T-shirt depicting the Overland Park school's Thunderbird mascot.

Though the actor didn't discuss his school years — he moved to Overland Park from Kentucky as a child and also attended the University of Kansas — he did discuss other important topics on "Conan," including how to fight a black bear and how to entertain Seattle Seahawks players at 7:30 a.m.
