In Pichit, a 76-year-old grandmother wins first prize in a laughing competition. Phrathip Pitak, the district office of Po Pra Tub Chang, arranges a laughing competition to promote healthy lifestyles and to boost local morale after a terrible flood that damaged their farmland. To win, one must laugh the longest, impress the majority of the audience and dress in the most wicked style. The clear winner ends up being Lek ReungSri, an elderly lady with no teeth. The prize is a loaf of bread and a blanket.
