“Dear PoPville,

I can’t possibly be the only one wondering this…

Behind the McDonald’s (across from Walmart) on Georgia Avenue & Peabody Street NW, stands a brick apartment building on Piney Branch Road. I sometimes need a Happy Meal when I get a migraine, and I first noticed this building several years ago when I was sitting in the drive through waiting to order my medicinal nuggets. What I wanted to know is, does anyone know what the deal is with the names bricked into the building above the two entrances: “Jay Joe” and “Barry”? The building looks like it is being renovated, and I bet they will eventually cover up ol Jay Joe and Barry forever. I think they are such odd names for building entrances.”
