: what does"a big fat nothing"mean?
: I can`t figure it out...
: sorry to make a misunderstand previously!

Sorry, it's really hard to answer the question without making some sort of joke as it is a humorous concept. Nothing has no existence so it can neither be big nor fat, nor can you have a lot of nothing, but that's what the phrase says - not only do you have nothing, but you have a whole heaping lot of nothing, very very much nothing.
