There’s this musical in London, called The Book of Mormon. You might’ve heard of it. It’s not very nice to Mormons. Anyway, in an effort to hit back against the heathens, the #RealMormons have launched a #Twitter campaign (complete with a load of incredibly earnest ads on tubes and buses), all to show how great #Mormons are and how down with da kidz religion is. You don’t need to be a social media expert to see where this is going.
Of course, Twitter being the cynical, mostly atheist place it is, most of the questions haven’t been about Mormonism and the Church of the Latter-Day Saints; instead, they’ve been oh-so-subtely ripping the piss out of Mormons. Here is my hall of #askamormon fame.

The thing I most want to ask a Mormon (re the tube advertising campaign) is: please may I have a ticket for your musical? — Polly Vernon (@PollyVernon) April 24, 2013
I keep reading those ‘Ask a Mormon’ posters as ‘Ask a Moron.’ Not the same.#goingtomormonhell

Probably Northern line southbound
And finally, this particular gem of Gospel truth:
@julietjacques Ah the “Ask A Mormon” ones? Asking for trouble, that ad line.
