Check out the Boss VE-20 vocal foot pedal, you can do many different sounds with it. It has a distortion setting that I'm sure can create that effect if you play with it enough.
Yeah. They are pretty dope for vocals. You can check out the BLACK EYED SNAKES. They used one alot.

I just watched a youtube video, and apparantly there's a preset on the VE-20 that's called 'Harmonica', which is meant to mimic a Green Bullet. Pretty interesting, but if the green bullet sound is what you're after, just buy the mic!
You probably know this but the most famous recording of that microphone (on blues harp) is 'Juke' by Little Walter with Muddy Waters' band.
Maybe that will hint at how they distort?
I got one of them and it is pretty cool! It cuts a lot of frequencies on the low end but it has a nice lo-fi sound with a little clip if you turn the volume you got on the mic itself.
If you put it trough and old tube preamp then you got the kind of "Sonics" vocal sound!
Obviously since it cuts frequencies once you can't go back to a normal vocals sound once you have recorded.
I really suggest to by one if you like that sound a telephone capsule might be too extreme!
I'll post some mp3's once I got the song mixed down...
