"Fat" properties?

Apparently automatic properties were called "fat" (or perhaps "phat") properties for a while internally. I can't think why, given that they're the slim version of normal property implementations! Of course, this kind of thing often becomes a piece of in-house terminology for no discernible reason at all.
