( The 30th Southeast Asian Games ended with a bang—not to mention 387 medals and the title of overall champion for the Philippines—on December 11. Athletes from Southeast Asia made their final march with all their medals, Arnel Pineda came on stage with Journey, the Black Eyed Peas also returned with, there was an epic drone show, dazzling fireworks, and the Vietnamese contingent even had a lovely presentation of their arts. Oh, and yes, Alan Peter Cayetano gave a speech; something people weren't too happy about, it seems.

Can't disagree.

We feel bad for Comic Sans.
