Originally a bc-chat thread sent out in annoyance of certain residents being inconsiderate about smoking in communal areas. After the unsavory individual in question responded to a complaint made over bc-chat about smoking in lounges, with "no one is smoking in Tucker, I've been here the whole time", many residents began responding to the e-mail chain with "Sounds like something someone smoking in Tucker would say," over and over again; eventually the phrase was said in a plethora of languages (including Spanish, Japanese, German, Latin, and meme), in many different iterations, with many different types of sentence syntax. Overall, there were over 22 responses to this chain within a couple hours.

The phrase became a meme and has been modified to fit many different circumstances. For instance, "Sounds like something someone puking on the Gildergreen would say"
