Denver is a very strange airport for security. PreCheck lines can be super long. The lead singer for Puddle of Mud was arrested there for riding the baggage carousel into the secure area. And it’s where TSA agents manipulated the nude-o-scopes so they could fondle attractive passengers.
It also seems that the airport was evacuated because the TSA found bath salts in a checked bag. They were wedding favors, the passengers had just gotten married, and the first names of the bride and groom both started with “T”. So the bath salts were labeled “TNT”
Apparently the wedding couple suffered the same confusion as Chandler from Friends who said,
I was just making a joke. I know the sign says no jokes about bombs, but shouldn’t the sign really say “no bombs.” I mean isn’t that the guy we really have to worry about here, the guy with the bombs? Not the guy who jokes about his bombs, not that I have bombs, because if I did I probably wouldn’t joke about about them. I’d probably want to keep that rather quiet.
If the passengers had checked actual explosives would they really label them as such?
Remember, don’t say hi to your friend Jack at the security checkpoint.
