Just when you thought John — the little kid who got caught with his face in the sprinkles jar — couldn't get any cuter, he goes and appears on Ellen with his mom Erica.

The 3-year-old was finally ready to admit that, yes, he did actually eat those sprinkles, but one confession does not a perfect angel make.

In fact, Ellen put John through a makeshift lie-detection test, and you'll be glad to know he's still just as compulsive a liar as ever.

But you just can't stay mad at him! So Ellen decides to reward his fibbing with all the sprinkles he can eat.
