Fatbikes, anyone have one?

In order to fulfil the n+1 rule, I'd love to have a go on a fatbike. Does anyone have one and does it offer anything dfferent to conventional XC biking? Are they that much better in snow and ice?

Couldn't you just strap a few tubs of lard go your normal bike?

I don't think that would help with the traction .
