Today, Tim Hortons timbits were trending on Twitter as Canadians took to the social media site to admit their #OtherUsesForTimbits.
As Narcity reports, the hashtag was quickly flooded with some pretty hilarious (even disturbing) joke confessions.
But as Canadians celebrated and skewered the popular, iconic treats, Americans expressed confusion. The donuts are completely foreign to most of the U.S. population. There are only a handful of Tim Hortons franchises in the States, and most of those are in the border states of Michigan and New York.
So in response to the trending topic, frustrated Americans offered some pretty hilarious guesses and asked some rather bizarre questions.
Global News first pointed out this phenomenon, but here are some of the funniest posts:

I'm not sure who Tim is or why they've chopped him up, but if it's the guy who lives in the next street from me, he's got big hands that could be used for holding soap, back scratcher, door stop, paper weight? 🤛💁♂️plus I know where to park my bike 🙄🍑

Most Americans who contributed to the discussion felt like Canadians owed them an explanation.
We feel bad for them.

The trending topic also stoked competition between American chain Dunkin Donuts and Tim Hortons.
Some offered an idea of what timbits are like in the U.S.

I actually don't know what Timbits are, but my friend is married to a man named Tim and I feel like she might know #OtherUsesForTimbits— Jahmegan (@Limini___) January 9, 2019
Quickly, the hashtag devolved into Americans just asking questions and Canadians complaining about Americans.
I came here for the #OtherUsesForTimbits too and all I see is Americans who aren't working the Google.— Mark Legosz (@legoszm) January 9, 2019
#OtherUsesForTimbits You can smuggle them across the border into the U.S. and secretly replace someone's Dunkin' Doughnuts doughnut holes with them. And they'll never know...Hahahahahaha! pic.twitter.com/21R1WAqPSe— Carl Lamy (@carllamy) January 9, 2019
Once Americans began to understand the value of timbits in Canada, they began to plot devious plans.
