LUEWWD | Durham, NC
Ze Dirty Butcher was a burlesque dancer who never got a gig, so she started working at the local butcher shop to pay the bills. Handling so much meat all day long made her into a new woman. Now she eats raw bones for breakfast, cuts off the heads of fuzzy bunnies without a blink, and can butcher a deer in 8 minutes flat. Burlesque dancer at heart but heart-less butcher by trade, she knows how to break bones with one hand and she’s not afraid to show you her meat!
By day: Jayme Dyer
Jayme Dyer is a yeast geneticist by trade. While she can't make you a good beer, she can tell you about how yeast have sex (yes, they really do it!). She and her newlywed husband run an intentional community in Durham, NC called Oakwood Community (http://oakwoodcommunity.org). Jayme and Cliff provide room and board for 4 interns who live in community with them, sharing meals, chores, and social life together. In exchange, the interns volunteer part-time at local non-profit organizations. Together, they raise rabbits and ducks for meat and eggs, cultivate 5 garden beds (named after London Underground stops), and make lots of fart jokes. In her spare time, Jayme trains in Olympic weightlifting. Her goal is to get a 100lb. snatch.
