It seems to be where people are a strange orange colour and phrases such as "reem" and "well jel" and actually mean something.
So with the news that a lion had allegedly been spotted roaming about down there, a little part of me was secretly hoping that it would find it's way onto the TOWIE set and destroy it, forcing the show off air for all eternity.
But alas it turns out that it was in fact a giant domestic cat having a great laugh at the British media's expense – another dream put on hold then.
However, one set of pictures that did shock the world this week were the snaps of Prince Harry's shenanigans in Las Vegas and, unlike our furry friend in Essex, these pictures were definitely not a case of mistaken identity, much to Clarence House's despair.
But were we really that shocked?
Firstly, it's Las Vegas or as it's also known Sin City (clue is in the name, I think) and Prince Harry is a young man in his 20s on a lads' holiday. I have to be honest and say that I would be more disappointed had he gone there and didn't misbehave.
Yes, I know he is a member of the Royal Family and has certain public duties to fulfil which, I'm assuming, would include keeping his clothes on, but he is only human after all.
He's young and a bit of a hottie but then again I also think Rupert Grint who played Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter Movies is also now a bit of a hottie so I'm thinking I might be developing a bit of a type here.
Anyway, I digress, the point is he has women throwing themselves at him like he's some Royal rock star so what normal red-blooded male wouldn't have done the same thing if they'd been in Harry's shoes, if he'd been wearing any of course?
The pictures have also sparked a Facebook internet campaign with more than 21,000 "likes" for the Support Prince Harry with a naked salute page.
Thousands of servicemen and women from all over the world shed their clothing to support the Prince during this media frenzy with thousands more getting in on the act every day.
No matter how much support he is given, I'm thinking Prince Harry may be laying low for the next few months or so until all this dies down, as it's been reported that there are more tales to come out about that fateful night.
We've had the lion sighting, the naked pictures in Vegas so I'm thinking boxer Mike Tyson and a baby cooing away is odds on to feature somewhere in next week's headlines.
