Paved Road On Unpaved Road, sometimes referred to as Good Road In The Middle Of Bad Road, Short Road or Bad Pavement, is an exploitable object-labeling image macro of a badly maintained road with a very short stretch of properly paved and marked road in the middle of it. Since the format was created in early 2020, it has been used to show how something long and largely bad is broken up by some relatively small or brief part much better than the larger whole.
The earliest documented source of the image is "მხიარული ბლოგი" ("Silly Blog"), a Georgian-language Facebook meme page that posted the image on January 30th, 2020 (seen below). The original post containing the image was captioned "სამგორი 😒😒 ეს რა არის ხალხნო?🧐" ("Samgori 😒😒 Is this how people are?🧐"). Samgori is a neighborhood in Tbilisi, Georgia's capital city. According to Redditor u/EnzoFrenzi, the patch is located on a street named Samgori Street in Tbilisi.
The image's earliest use as a meme format came four days later on February 3rd when Redditor u/Mixman21 posted a labeled version of the image (shown below) to /r/MemeEconomy.
The meme became widely used almost immediately after being created with multiple examples posted to Reddit the same day as the first meme on February 3rd, 2020, each receiving thousands of upvotes, including examples by Redditors u/Chandler_Bling (seen below, left) and u/ProfessionalBreeki (seen below, right).
On March 2nd, 2020, Redditor Ak_Ibrahim posted another example of the meme about laziness (shown below) to /r/memes. The image received over 21,000 upvotes in six months and has been reposted in numerous locations elsewhere online.
