Lousy lousy clue - there are too many hates for chick - making a raspberry right now

I did not add in that clue, but I read it as a response to Chick's "dumba** photo" guesses and thought the statement was supposed to represent the place itself feeling hated upon.

But the hint was changed and the puzzle is now solved.

Never was there a motive to disrespect Chick herself. She is widely known for her ability to take a joke, so I'm sure there was never any ill intent.

Chick - please accept my apologies on behalf of the Editing staff and the WTHAI Administrators if you felt any insult.

I can't speak for her - but I'm sure your right about her taking a joke - after I saw the answer - (I was already out of guesses) - I thought to myself - well dang - I didn't think about the hint being facetious! But if it was changed - I guess it wasn't - what was it changed to for those poor slobs who were scrolling through chat for the things she hated

I did post the clues and of course would not have had I not known very well that Chick would take it in the same spirit as her own comments.

Kaelin - The comments were supposed to be the building responding to Chick's calling it a dumb photo. ("I'm not " "Yes you are!" "No clues for haters!" "Bite me!" "Chick is very un-American to hate me so much")
And then of course the real clue was that the building was "very American".

All in good fun.

On behalf of Chick, I am not insulted.

Thanks Foolsploof - I get that - but Chick loves her Cubs - so it was an extremely challenging clue - I must have missed the posts if she hated this building - I think I, like most assumed it was a rival teams baseball park - which would make sense if they were a threat to her cubs....which is why I thought after seeing the answer "oh it was a facetious clue".

Alls well that ends well - and it looks like the person that guessed was someone new on the charts
