Alex Me : "I don't try to make it funny or else it's not funny." Dang, this girl is woke

Laura Carías : —How's life? —The same. Genius

Tony Styles : THE WAY SHE JUST LAUGHS AFTER SHE WRITES A CAPTION I JUST LOVE HER

ElyssaAnderson : She's the most adorable person I've ever seen ☺️

August Kuuskvere : It’s deeply upsetting that she is both funnier than I am and also has infinitely better handwriting.

simon wang : The "How's life?" one was just... wow so deep.

Eralen00 : These are the best captions of this entire series. The fish tank one was my favorite

Olavo Ataide : give her a job already

osopk : "next time catch a fish, tho" was my favorite

sparksoffyou : She’s better at this than the actual comedians!

Joseph Kienstra : The bowling one is so smart! So cool to see a kid exercise her creativity. She gets so happy after writing each one :)

Kevin Alterman : 1:22 Wow Son! You caught a loan shark!

Sebastiana : Many of her captions were both funny while also subtly sociopolitical without intention. She has great wit and great intuition!

Mark Tchadej : Turtle one had me do a spit take

the tube : i liked the wrecking ball one XD

Ryan Brooks : For the 1:22 cartoon, i was thinking ".... we're gonna throw this one back..."

ManOfCorn : The way she smiles after reading her caption! Kids are so pure!

guacamole : She's brilliant! Let's keep an eye on her.

ty12mi34 : “I think I need a seahorse.”

assmane999 : 2:30 I am ready to admit it now....I have an eating disorder.

Isaac Holzwarth : 3:20 "Not exactly what I meant by 'let's table the discussion'..."

karplefropx : For the last one, i was thinking "That's not what I meant by 'we need to table this meeting'..." .. or something along those lines.

Mark Frellips : Fish tank was certainly the best. Something amazing about that childhood perspective to keep things _______

Milagros Gimenez : I want Liza here just for the puns

joecab : Good job. Alice came up with captions beating all the adults' ones. Maybe she has a point to not overthinking it.

Alex : This only met the expectations I had before reading the comments. They would have you believe she's actually got some pretty decent captions. I guess they're decent for her age, but that's really not enough for me...

Jack White : The fishing one-“May I interest you in some boat insurance”

w Waleos : Wow just wow

granitsky : Wow, she has the "comedy gene" - so naturally gifted.

Just Chilin : She’s too cute my favorite ones don’t judge haha

meloD30 : 0:05 LOL. That's cute, but... 0:31 OMG !!!

Spidey Fist : I dont get it. Is the New Yorker not supposed to be funny? Cause I think I have seen all of the videos in this series and have yet to find one of them amusing.

Billy Sweaterson : How about doing videos of people who actually know how to write a caption for the contest? Like the finalists and winners?

Randy Zeitman : "We could split a JiffyPop, it's only $32."

Khyron9 : She wins. I laughed way louder and more than for any of the other videos in this series. Brilliant!

Burro sin mecate : She replenishes in one's day what a Donald Trump takes away. (Shine on, Dear !)

Lisa Beebe : "Don't judge" killed me.

Katia Martins : Good, Very good!!! She is socute 🌹🍃💗🌹🍃💗🌹🍃 Great hug and kisses 👼😇😗🌸

DJ Jack the Producer ap Beats : 3:03 I was gonna do “Ok bob, you want bumpers or no?”
