    I saw this video of this kid maybe two days before Ellen announced that she wanted to see him.. I knew that once she saw it should would want to meet him. Due to studying I was so bummed when I learned he was on your show. I really got a kick out of him..Hence my name being Linda. Go Mateo..I knew Ellen would get you those cupcakes. Kids say the darndest things. Love you Ellen D.

    It is truly sad to see how people only saw the cuteness in this video. I just saw the an authoritative father figure who is never ready to listen to his wife perfectly projected through the child.

    I absolutely love this, yes he may have heard this from his father….but he is absolutely hilarious! And the mom tries to explain why he can’t have cupcakes before dinner and he explains his view…Linda, Linda honey you don’t understand! I don’t know how she kept from laughing, I would have been laughing my butt off!!! Makes me want cupcakes!!!!!
