Interdasting is a humorously modified version of the word “interesting” used to convey attentiveness to the subject, but also a lack of information about the theme, hence the expression is spelled incorrectly.
The term may often be encountered, paired with a photo of a person with down syndrome, looking into nothing, lamenting.
Origin of the meme
The first and only notable case of the expression was uploaded as a meme to Know Your Meme in 2012, depicting the aforementioned pondering person.
