Dull and Boring

Many cities adopt a "sister city" across the pond. These matchups between the New World and the Old World serve as a sort of cultural exchange. People in the village of Dull, in Perthshire, Scotland, have shown their sense of humor by seeking out a partnership with the Oregon logging town of Boring.
Elizabeth Leighton, from Grandtully in Highland Perthshire, came up with the scheme to form the partnership between two of the world's least "exciting" communities when she was on a cycling holiday.

She passed through Boring and thought it would be an ideal partnership with the community of Dull.

She sent an email to her friend Emma Burtles, who lives in Dull, and got in touch with Steve Bates, who chairs the Boring Community Planning Organisation.

Community councillor Marjorie Keddie said: "It might seem like a joke, but this could have real benefits for Dull. Everyone has been smiling at the prospect of the very eye-catching road sign this will inevitably require."
