The Elite Force of Britain: a group of superheroes who joined together to solve one problem and decided to stick together to solve many. Lately, however, the team have been elsewhere. Some superheroes are on an important mission on a planet far, far away, and others are dealing with more home-grown issues. Due to this lack in superheroes, the despicable Supervillains United have taken the opportunity to strike.
Speculation is running high that the superheroes’ return is imminent, so the SVU are swiftly undertaking a recruitment campaign to swell their number.

The even more despicable Dropped Apostrophe is in charge of recruitment. And he is ‘roofless’ as he occasionally describes himself. A rejection letter has been delivered to a wannabe new member, it appears the applicant’s name had been deliberately left off the letter.

    2. I absolutely agree, Beverly. Even their red hotline is going to voicemail.

  3. I’ve not come across the SVU or Superheroes before. The Dropped Apostrophe needs to go back to elementary school, his literacy skills are abominable. But I guess that fits with his name …

    1. He does that, Raili. He also need to learn some manners. He’s despicable.

  4. Is there anyone out there who’s genuinly suitable to fill the role of role of Superhero???
    Do they have the Superhero Badge?
    Have they got the T.Shirt?
    Do they know how to rip their shirt off and show their Superheroness?
    And .. most importantly . . .
    Are they willing to wear Superhero Knickers over their Superhero tights???

    And – before I sign off – I agree with Soul Gifts . . . The Dropped Apostrophe needs more Edumacation! 😀

    My fingers, heart and one brain cell were itching to delete, correct and put right many words in that post. So much so that I began to believe I had an OCD. (lol)

      1. Noooo, not you Beverly. Never you.
        Unless you mean the bit about wearing your superhero knickers over your tights… and if so… I’m in trouble too, because I wouldn’t do that either.
        lol

              1. Well since I’m not a Superhero, I won’t have to worry about it. But for those gals who are in the Elite Force, that’s certainly an option available to them. 😀 (Although they’re probably far more outgoing than I am, so won’t have any problems) lol

    2. That’s one of the Dropped Apostrophe’s tricks, Cobs, to cause his opponents to shudder.
      I’d help out, but I gave up being a superhero years ago.

        1. All I can say is perhaps, Cobs… although I don’t know who, when, where or why! They aren’t letting on… but I think I like it that way.
