“I did not eat sprinkles” (adorable video)

This one is great. A 3 year old boy is caught on camera telling his mom that he did not eat the sprinkles (I used to call these “chocolate ants”), while his face is covered in sprinkles.

From the parents:

My 3 year old fibbing to my face, and it is surprisingly cute haha! After I filmed it we had a VERY long talk about lying. He has an amazing imagination and loves to tell us stories, however the lying is JUST starting to occur. We are currently working on the difference, and he is doing really well. :)

I love kids. The video is at the bottom. Here’s some of the dialogue:

i-did-no-eat-sprinkles

John, what are you eating?
Nuffing.
You didn’t eat anything?
Yeah. Nuffing.
John, look at mommy.
Anyfing.
Are you telling me the truth?
Yep.
You didn’t have any snacks?
Nope.
Let me see, you didn’t have any snacks?
(Boy opens mouth wide, makes “aaaahhhhhh” sound, mouth is full of sprinkle bits.)
Open wide, let me see.
(Mom zooms in on sprinkles.)
Really, you didn’t have any snacks?
Yeah.
John, come here. John, can you explain to me why the sprinkles are emptied?

Well, they’re not empty.
John, look at me.
They’re not empty.
Did you eat those sprinkles?
No, I did not eat sprinkles.
John, you have sprinkles on your face.
(John touches his face.)
Oh, no no. I did not eat sprinkles.

Here’s the video:

  1. Human race says we’re going to play ping pong now and you can play if you want to

  2. Jimmy says:

    Well, you have to give the kid some credit for standing by his story under mom’s interrogation. Too hilarious.

  3. karmanot says:

    True, he could be a little gay baby and was decorating.

  4. karmanot says:

    There is also the possibility that the jar in question was a diversion to hide the fact that the cookie jar was empty and the mother was testilying to incriminate the kid and teach him a lesson in unethical morality.

  5. karmanot says:

    You must be a Protestant. For Catholics Christ is the cracker.

  6. karmanot says:

    Chris is not worried about the sprinkles, its the crispy creme doughnut that carries them.

  7. Just an elbow says:

    Christ on a cracker, get a grip.

  8. emjayay says:

    I thought that was only the chocolate ones.

  9. HryPop says:

    In John’s defense he did not eat the sprinkles that were “not all gone” and the ones on his face are at best argumentative, Therefore I support his assertion I did not eat the sprinkles.

  10. emjayay says:

    In his years as governor he has if anything only gotten fatter.

  11. emjayay says:

    John is right. The sprinkles jar is not empty. He will be a lawyer.

    It would endear the electorate, I’m sure. Of course, there’s one way you’ll know Christie is running for president: watch his weight loss. Americans will not elect a guy that heavy, but if he loses a ton of weight (a la Huckabee), he becomes an American inspiration…and that’s money in the bank.

    BTW, Google a pick of Christie’s high school picture. I hope he was a nice guy, but that smile….I can just hear a snide comment coming out that bouche!

  13. Not so fast. I understand Chris Christie is really worried about how his “I didn’t eat sprinkles” video is going to affect his presidential chances.

  14. hollywoodstein says:

    Stick to your story kid. It wasn’t me.

  15. hollywoodstein says:

    I didn’t inhale, Mom.

  16. karmanot says:

    There goes Harvard, but Yale will admit him.

  17. keirmeister says:

    I seriously doubt this is going to come up in a job interview. The kid is 3 years old. It’s not like the “youthful indiscretions” George W. Bush had in his 40’s!

  18. Clevelandchick says:

    yay, a future Republican.

  19. dula says:

    “I did not eat any sprinkles. I just stuck them on my face…didn’t swallow ’em or nuffing.”

  20. leathersmith says:

    this is in his *permanent* file

  21. ComradeRutherford says:

    My 3 year old doesn’t ever lie to me, his older sisters didn’t even know what lying was until the eldest was in 4th grade and she met one girl for whom lying was the only way she knew how to communicate. Our family is open and honest with each other (almost) all the time.

  22. hollywoodstein says:

    Future politician.

  23. MoonDragon says:

    We called them Jimmies.

  24. karmanot says:

    Those sprinkles attacked me while I was napping!

  25. Ninong says:

    The boy is cute, but what his mother is doing in posting that video is bragging about her lack of parenting skills. Remember: What happens on the Internet, stays on the Internet.

    Years from now her son may not appreciate his mother’s sense of humor.

  26. John Wallach says:

    Funny and disturbing at the same time.
