|Maura:||So, there is an example where we use the expression fat chance. And this means that there is not a good chance of that happening.|
|Harp:||Exactly. There’s very little chance that I’m ever gonna marry Brad Pitt.|
|Maura:||Sorry to break it to you, Harp, but it’s true. There’s probably a very small chance and it’s almost impossible that you’ll marry Brad Pitt.|
|Harp:||I would say it’s impossible.|
|Maura:||So, that is how we can use fat chance. And like we said, we didn’t use fat chance in a sentence, we just responded to the idea of marrying Brad Pitt by saying fat chance.|
|Harp:||Yeah, ’cause this is the student that always answers the question, always puts his hand up, or her hand.|
