It all started with this tweet from Fox Business Network host Lou Dobbs: "look deeper, he's nothing but a globalist, Romney and Mormon Mafia tool."

He's referring to independent presidential candidate Evan McMullin, but the internet is only paying attention to two words in that tweet, "Mormon Mafia". Now it's a trending hashtag across the country.

Utahns and Mormons are rolling with the punches on this one. Tweets flooded the internet, poking fun at some of the peculiar things in the LDS culture, like an unhealthy obsession with Jell-O and funeral potatoes along with their extreme amount of service.

We've learned one thing with this story - Don't mess with the Mormon Mafia. Watch the video above for some of the most popular tweets.
