The two towns Dull in Scotland and Boring in Oregon, US, are attempting to become twins and the whole process is so exciting that many of their occupants have actually been seen laughing and smiling.
The residents of Dull, Perthshire, tend to be pretty dull because the weather seems to affect their behaviour and looks. They tend to be mostly miserable and look like pale-face freckled "milk bottles"; boring.
Their US colleagues in Boring; well the name speaks for itself, are mostly religious fanatics; dull Mormons in fact. They arise at dawn, work the fields until sunset, pray in between, go home and pray till midnight, don't have sex until Christmas and Easter and get up the next morning to do the same seven days a week.
Now the two towns are hoping to twin up and add a bit of spicy excitement to their lives and are starting with several exchanges; Mormons heading east and Scottish Presbyterians heading west. It promises to be a very dull knees up in Boring and a boring old shindig in Dull; Yawn, ZZZZZZZZZZZZZ!
