Francisco Kjolseth | The Salt Lake Tribune Twin sisters Valerie, left, and Vicki Darger, both married to Polygamist Joe Darger along with third wife Alina, not pictured, get ready to enter Federal court in Salt Lake City for a hearing of arguments in the "Sister Wives" lawsuit challenging Utah's bigamy laws.

As serious Journalists here at The Tribune, we cover the most hard-hitting of topics. But earlier this week we were entertained, and educated, by something on the lighter side: “polygamist pickup lines” — found with the hastag #polygamistpickuplines — spreading through Twitter.

The conversation got started Monday night by Twitter user Rachel Barry before luring in half a dozen or so other tweeters over the next day. My personal favorite: “you’re once, twice, three times a lady #lionelrichie.” Thanks @DargerFamily. Click below to see the whole conversation.
