Taken from the saying "It ain't over until the fat lady sings," commonly attributed to ex-Yankee ballplayer Yogi Berra.

Presumably, the "fat lady" in question is a stereotyped opera singer, replete in Wagnerian Rhinemaden garb. Ironically enough, the "fat lady" was usually singing the United States National Anthem, the traditional way to START a baseball game.
Sure, we're behind by 300 points. But it ain't over until the fat lady sings.

To show up to work late, hungover and/or still drunk. A term used by English speaking ex-pats living in Venice, Italy. The term is rumoured to have originated from being stuck behind a fat lady on crutches in the narrow streets of Venice, it was rumoured to have been originally an excuse for being late to work, the current definition has grown to incorporate being both late and generally unfit to work.

This could be self explanitory. Actually, all you need to do is look at just about any SUV you see driving by, and you will see her in the drivers seat.
Who is that driving in from of me, blocking my view? Oh, it must be SUV Fat Lady driving her SUV. Where is her husband? Well her husband is at work, busting his butt so his sponge wife will have enough money to spend.
