Dust My Wets is internet slang used to comedically describe the act of grating cheese on pasta, the cheese being the "dust" and the pasta noodles being the "wets" due to their textures. The phrase was first used in a viral 2019 tweet, which has been shared numerous times across social media and inspired a number of memes referencing it, most frequently image macros and photoshops.
On March 5th, 2019, Twitter user @horsedivorce posted a tweet imagining a scenario at a restaurant where a man asks the server to "dust his wets," referring to grating parmesan cheese on their noodles (shown below). The tweet gained over 64,000 likes and 17,000 retweets in two years.
The post also inspired a number of image macros referencing it over the course of 2019 and 2020.
