About

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.

Origin

On March 5th, 2019, Twitter[1] 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.

Spread

The tweet gained significant popularity, with a screenshot being reshared on social media a number of times that year.[2][3]
