hahaha and with this – I conclude my continuing coverage of Don’s Johns.

“Dear PoPville,

Don’s announced today that it will be “covering up” the logos of Gene’s Johns and Blue Ribbon Restrooms via acquisition.

The deal positions Don’s Johns as the largest provider of sanitation services in the mid-Atlantic region.”

From a press release: (more…)

A reader reports:

“Seems they are serious about anywhere a TV camera might capture that there be no Don’s Johns. Now at Reagan Building, 7th Street across from ArchivesMetro, etc. thick plastic replaced blue painters tape. Who is paying for this? AOC lamely said on Mall it was to comply with ban on advertising. Is there a ban on advertising on 7th Street NW?”

Update Melissa writes:

“I saw a comment on the latest Don John coverup thread claiming advertising of any kind is prohibited from the inauguration. Coincidentally, I was looking through old photos/reminiscing about Obama’s inauguration, and came across this photo from 2008. I can’t tell if it’s Don John’s logo, but the name was clearly permitted.

I sh*t you not!! Sign of the times!!! A reader reports:

“Given the Trump camp’s newfound sensitivity around bathroom humor, workers are currently going around the National Mall taping over the company name on each porta-potty: “Don’s Johns.”

It’s making the rounds on Twitter”

I told you I would not restEd. Note: This series is really upsetting the “I didn’t vote for Trump but I’m here to defend the sanctity of the inauguration” crew. I will therefore continue to continue it. PS so many Hawk photos came in today – keep on keeping them coming too!! Anyway, a reader reports:

“Walked down to the White House this morning to say farewell and thank you to the Obamas and found a third porta-potty company – “Johnny on the spot” – without their logo taped over.

But I did also find a bigger Don’s Johns trailer-bathroom left uncovered. For what it’s worth – it didn’t look like this one would be open to the public.”

Somebody alert the commandant!

Don's Johns Proof
15th and Pennsylvania Ave, NW

While the national news may have moved on to more trivial issues like Cabinet confirmations and such, rest assured, I will not rest, until we get to the bottom!!! Ed. Note: I also have more hawk photos to post – keep those coming too! Thanks to Anthony for sending this update on our continuing coverage of the Don’s Johns cover up.

“On my walk through the National Mall & adjacent areas earlier today, it seemed like the Don’s Johns logos were the only logos being hidden. Logos from a multitude of other vendors in the same areas remained untouched.”

Update – and another contrast from ksutton she took on Sunday:

Reader reports: “Might want to share that nearly all porta potties from inauguration are locked.”

I try to escape Don’s Johns coverage but they keep pulling me back in!!

“Dear PoPville,

As I was waking past the dog park on 25th and M around 7:15 last night, I came across the unfortunate sight of the DC medical examiner’s van backed up to a port-a-potty (incidentally it was a Don’s John). As I passed, I caught a glimpse of a gurney being wheeled toward the open door of a port-a-potty. There were also 8 or so uniformed and plainclothes cops, as well as techs. I obviously don’t know details, but I feel for the poor person who passed away (or was dumped) in a port-a-potty. I know it’s speculation at this point, but if what I suspect is true and a homeless person passed away in a port-a-potty, I hope this motivates elected officials — and all of us — to do more for our homeless.”
