Quite a pair
'Dull' is to twin with 'Boring'
The British village of Dull is to forge links with a US town called Boring.
The partnership came about after a Scottish cyclist, who knew of Dull, in Perthshire, pedalled through Boring in the American town of Oregon.
News was relayed back to villagers in Dull - who immediately made contact with their US counterparts in an effort to set up 'Dull and Boring'. [...]
A spokesman said: "This absolutely illustrates one of the top reasons why people come to Scotland - our sense of humour.
"We already know that, after the landscape, the friendliness and sense of humour of the Scottish people is the top reason why people come to Scotland.
"And I'm sure that that sense humour will now be translated across the Atlantic to Oregon. All we need now is a town called Fed Up."
The idea to 'twin' Dull, in Perthshire, and Boring, in the US state of Oregon, came about after Scots cyclist Elizabeth Leighton pedalled through Boring during a holiday.
