Tim Hortons Timbits Are Trending On Twitter Today And Americans Are Extremely Confused

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:

#OtherUsesForTimbits

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 🙄🍑
