Super cute French kid ad-libbing a fantastic story with crocodiles, monkeys, and Winnie the Pooh. I hope she got license clearance for those copyrighted characters. More about the video here at videogum. (thanks, John Walsh!)

  1. I favor the gas permeable, extended wear, but that is a matter of personal preference.

    I’m with you, very much, on the sentiment, though.

  2. I smell…SCREENPLAY!!! would totally pay to see the film version of that story. We gonna hook that kid up with Michel Gondry.

  3. #16 I know exactly what you mean…such a little show off!! She’s all “lookit me!! I am only 5 and I speak ze French!!”

  4. Wow. Smart kid and her parents must read to her a lot. She uses the “passe simple” a lot, a past tense only used in writing.

    And your lesson in French is done for the day. ;-)

  5. “It’s like they have a different word for everything!” – S. Martin

    Reminds me of another line in one of those Matrix 2 movies::

    When you curse in french it’s like wiping your rear with silk (not the exact quote mind you).

    Never mind that: she’s all over the subjunctive tense too.

  7. Yeah, great, super cute and all…but what happened to the monkeys?!? Did they find their way home?

    must find part II

  8. i’m sure she said that the lion said that it was time to EAT the hippo, not for him to be dead in heaven.

  9. Good lord, that child should be locked up before her cuteness reaches some kind of critical mass and destroys the planet.

  10. Wow. As a native speaker of French, I can certify that this girl is positively cute as heck. Wow, I’m ready to have kids!

  11. I shall keep her in a sphere of adamantine crystal, illuminated from within to dispel the Stygian chill of the deeps, an ornament to grace my lonely vigil at the Bottommost Gates.

  12. @ Anonymous #38: Well, that little kid is a native French speaker. ;-)

    Super cutesy cute. And a lovely terrifying story. Watch out, Stephen King, the next generation of storytellers arrives…

  13. OMG! She is so cute! That was quite a story! lol! Good thing there were subtitles because I don’t speak french. She is so adorable though!

  14. Seriously adorable… but as an American who lives in France, it cracks me up that this little girl is already creating stories with a classically French plot… replete with oppressed “animals who can’t pay and have nothing to eat,” frightening trees, and a suicidal hippo. It’s almost surprising she didn’t have a cigarette in hand, sending wistful smoke skyward.

    P.S. I’m kidding of course… and yes, still find her very cute.
