This looks like some spiny bug or disease on this bush but I can't tell if it is part of the bush. I don't know what the bush is. It looks like some wild bush because I don't remember if I planted it or not. I cut the spiny thing open but it doesn't look like a bug. It's only on 3 or 4 branches. I can't find anything like it on the Internet. Any info will be appreciated. I'd like to know what this bush is.

The pod on the left appears to have holes bored in the base of the individual pods, there's a small bug in the photo.

It does look like this. I'm in Pennsylvania, USA. Is this possible? You say there is a bug inside????

It certainly is possible in Pennsylvania. Check the lower distribution map on the left of the gobotany site.

There are black areas with holes at the bases. I can see what looks like a small light brown insect at the bottom of the pic, it might be something else but the holes suggest a seed eating bug or moth caterpillar.
