DALLAS- The DFW airport bomb squad got into some action this morning because of a vibrating mystery bag, and it looks like we may have dodged a hair.

"I was escorted back over here, and I've hanging around since about 10:30 while the bomb squad worked over my bag," Ryan Rourke said. "It turns out that the vibrating was a nose hair clipper that I had forgotten I'd even put in there."

Guess sometimes this is the price you pay for wanting to look nice!

Rourke left his bag on the carousel while walking a friend to her connecting flight at a different terminal.

They were just hanging in the Admiral's Club when he got the emergency call that someone heard a vibration coming from his lonely bag and freaked out.

Maybe we can take this as a learning opportunity to think twice about vibrating items we're flying with.

Tickle Me Elmo? Better pass on that.

That expensive toothbrush you like? Nahhh.

And ladies? ....You see where I'm going with this!

"I explained everything that was in there," Rouke said. "I have a bluetooth radio speaker, and I figured it was that, but it wasn't I don't even know how they heard it."

Aside from them ripping up Rourke's luggage, everything is back to normal, but man...that must be a pretty bomb nose hair trimmer to get all of this attention!

We know, too soon, too soon.
