Dull, Perth & Kinross to twin with Boring, Oregon

Posted April 30 2012

In a move that can only be described as enlightened, the residents of Dull are exploring the possibilities of twinning their glorious hamlet (pop: less than 60) with the comparative metropolis of Boring, Oregon (pop 13000). 

 

Naturally, I encourage this kind of forward thinking behaviour and believe that more councils should take note - enrich the lives passing travellers by bringing a little bit of daftness into their day!

 

Their are many articles that I could link to but here's the Guardian's take on it:
