    this episode, as i have said before is one of the funniest in the series! it has plenty of jokes and some very good alternative humour. in my opinion it just looses out on firs place to the one where she dresses up as the easter bunny. i think the funniest thing must be the brussels sprout eating contest and alice's 'less on the ball' sister
