"I get all Cs and Ds - which stand for 'Cute' and 'Delicious'"

Bianca just knows that everyone wants to be her. And why not? By her estimation, she has everything: good looks, humour, popularity, fashion sense, and, above all, intelligence.

When told she should be engaged in volunteer work, Bianca decides to perform a work of great service to mankind: She will teach us all how to "Be Bianca."

From brushing your teeth to choosing the best stuffed animal, she leads us gleefully through her semi-complete guide.

In the end, while the audience may not be convinced that "Being Bianca" is the best idea, they will certainly agree that watching her is a sure formula for hilarity!
