    I can just imagine the nightlife (yawn). Probably just like home.

      I had a look on Google maps and I couldn’t see any night clubs. Or restaurants. Or houses.

    Odd and interesting how your brain works to a prompt.
    Hilarious. I found an advertisement for a new restaurant opening in Boring, but oops, not there. LOL

      Are you sure it wasn’t an advertisement for a boring new restaurant? 🙂
      I think the Guardian article I linked to mentions some other amusing town names as well.
