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".
