Communications are under way to pair the two settlements, even though they are 5,542 miles apart.
A Dull resident joked: "Imagine how many people would do a double-take if it said 'Welcome to Dull, a Sister Community of Boring'."
After hearing about Dull, Steve Bates of Boring was reportedly interested in the idea of joining the two, inviting Dull to be the Sister Community of Boring. Marjorie Keddle of Dull has already received a 'Declaration of Sistership'.
Bates plans to discuss the future when the Boring Planning Organisation meets in June, according to the Daily Mail.
Keddle has since 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."
The difference in population, under 150 residents of Dull compared to 13,000 of Boring, means the two towns can't officially twin, but they are still looking forward to having a good relationship.
