Never before has such a frenzy of interest surrounded Dull and Boring.
Boring, a town of 15,000 in Oregon, has
voted in favour of "pairing" with Dull, a small Scottish village in Perthshire. In a version of events suggestive of a whimsical British
feature film, the arrangement had been suggested to Boring Community
Planning Council by the Dull Women's Book Club.
The connection has succeeded in generating acres of publicity for the twin settlements.
Both hope their link-up will attract tourists eager to be
photographed alongside signs displaying legends such as "Dull, in
association with Boring".
