It is that flat metal bar with a hook at the end for opening car door locks.

My version of Jimmies may not been quite your version.
I would hazard a guess that you mean pyjamas. Which we refer to as Jammies. (with an 'a')
Point of interest - in my social circle we use the term Jimmie to mean going to the toilet. As in "I'm just going for a jimmie".

Yes, they are like little sprinkles you can put on ice cream or a cupcake.

Here, the chocolate type would be called vermicelli and the multi-coloured ones are hundreds-and-thousands.

It's always good to learn more about cake-related things  * smile *

To me, vermicelli is pasta. That's interesting.

Most people here call the chocolate and colored ones sprinkles. Jimmies seems to be slightly regional.

Also, I didn't even think about jimmies as cake-related. In my mind, they are ice cream-related.

Yes; they are those short pry-bars that burglars use to open doors and windows.

I thought I did. Hopefully, it won't make you laugh too much when I say that we used to get them on our ice cream cones.
