A fun wedding favor was no joke to TSA agents at Denver International Airport.

An agent watching an X-ray monitor spotted wax and fuses inside a checked bag at the airport on September 22 in a behind-the-scenes area where checked bags are inspected.

TSA wrote on Instagram that there was a 20-minute evacuation of the area while bomb specialists checked the bag.

They determined that while the wax and fuses were on bottles that said TNT, inside was just bath salts and the bottles were wedding favors.

TSA said the bride and groom's names both start with a "T," so their wedding souvenirs were labeled TNT.

Relatives of the couple told us they got married in Lyons.
