General Zod's Greek Freak-Out − Michael Shannon Reads The Delta Gamma Sorority Email

Michael Shannon Delta Gamma

You may have read Rebecca Martinson's batshit letter to her Delta Gamma sorority sisters at the University of Maryland, but you haven't experienced the full mind-blowing vitriol of this remarkable document until General Zod performs it for you.  This exclusive Funny or Die clip of Man of Steel star Michael Shannon, who plays Superman's Kryptonian rival, has just surpassed "Bat Fight" to become my favorite FOD video thanks to Shannon's impeccable comic timing and delivery.

If you aren't familiar with Martinson's work, check out the back story on Gawker or The Frisky. You can also read the letter in its entirety below before checking out the video, but do check out the video, if only to hear the actor say, "News flash, you stupid fucking cocks!"  Shannon gives us a performance that's a mix of his acidic portrayal of sardonic music-business legend Kim Fowley in The Runaways and the "I WILL FIND HIM!" rage of Zod in the Man of Steel trailer.  Are you not entertained?

Michael Shannon's Greek Freak-Out

Here's the Martinson email in its entirety: 

If you just opened this like I told you to, tie yourself down to whatever chair you’re sitting in, because this email is going to be a rough fucking ride.

For those of you that have your heads stuck under rocks, which apparently is the majority of this chapter, we have been FUCKING UP in terms of night time events and general social interactions with Sigma Nu. I’ve been getting texts on texts about people LITERALLY being so fucking AWKWARD and so fucking BORING. If you’re reading this right now and saying to yourself “But oh em gee Julia, I’ve been having so much fun with my sisters this week!”, then punch yourself in the face right now so that I don’t have to fucking find you on campus to do it myself.

I do not give a flying fuck, and Sigma Nu does not give a flying fuck, about how much you fucking love to talk to your sisters. You have 361 days out of the fucking year to talk to sisters, and this week is NOT, I fucking repeat NOT ONE OF THEM. This week is about fostering relationships in the greek community, and that’s not fucking possible if you’re going to stand around and talk to each other and not our matchup. Newsflash you stupid cocks: FRATS DON’T LIKE BORING SORORITIES. Oh wait, DOUBLE FUCKING NEWSFLASH: SIGMA NU IS NOT GOING TO WANT TO HANG OUT WITH US IF WE FUCKING SUCK, which by the way in case you’re an idiot and need it spelled out for you, WE FUCKING SUCK SO FAR. This also applies to you little shits that have talked openly about post gaming at a different frat IN FRONT OF SIGMA NU BROTHERS. Are you people fucking retarded? That’s not a rhetorical question, I LITERALLY want you to email me back telling me if you’re mentally slow so I can make sure you don’t go to anymore night time events. If Sigma Nu openly said “Yeah we’re gonna invite Zeta over”, would you be happy? WOULD YOU? No you wouldn’t, so WHY THE FUCK WOULD YOU DO IT TO THEM?? IN FRONT OF THEM?!! First of all, you SHOULDN’T be post gaming at other frats, I don’t give a FUCK if your boyfriend is in it, if your brother is in it, or if your entire family is in that frat. YOU DON’T GO. YOU. DON’T. GO. And you ESPECIALLY do fucking NOT convince other girls to leave with you.

“But Julia!”, you say in a whiny little bitch voice to your computer screen as you read this email, “I’ve been cheering on our teams at all the sports, doesn’t that count for something?” NO YOU STUPID FUCKING ASS HATS, IT FUCKING DOESN’T. DO YOU WANNA KNOW FUCKING WHY?!! IT DOESN’T COUNT BECAUSE YOU’VE BEEN FUCKING UP AT SOBER FUCKING EVENTS TOO. I’ve not only gotten texts about people being fucking WEIRD at sports (for example, being stupid shits and saying stuff like “durr what’s kickball?” is not fucking funny), but I’ve gotten texts about people actually cheering for the opposing team. The opposing. Fucking. Team. ARE YOU FUCKING STUPID?!! I don’t give a SHIT about sportsmanship, YOU CHEER FOR OUR GODDAMN TEAM AND NOT THE OTHER ONE, HAVE YOU NEVER BEEN TO A SPORTS GAME? ARE YOU FUCKING BLIND? Or are you just so fucking dense about what it means to make people like you that you think being a good little supporter of the greek community is going to make our matchup happy? Well it’s time someone told you, NO ONE FUCKING LIKES THAT, ESPECIALLY OUR FUCKING MATCHUP. I will fucking cunt punt the next person I hear about doing something like that, and I don’t give a fuck if you SOR me, I WILL FUCKING ASSAULT YOU.

“Ohhh Julia, I’m now crying because your email has made me oh so so sad”. Well good. If this email applies to you in any way, meaning if you are a little asswipe that stands in the corners at night or if you’re a weird shit that does weird shit during the day, this following message is for you:


I’m not fucking kidding. Don’t go. Seriously, if you have done ANYTHING I’ve mentioned in this email and have some rare disease where you’re unable to NOT do these things, then you are HORRIBLE, I repeat, HORRIBLE PR FOR THIS CHAPTER. I would rather have 40 girls that are fun, talk to boys, and not fucking awkward than 80 that are fucking faggots. If you are one of the people that have told me “Oh nooo boo hoo I can’t talk to boys I’m too sober”, then I pity you because I don’t know how you got this far in life, and with that in mind don’t fucking show up unless you’re going to stop being a goddamn cock block for our chapter. Seriously. I swear to fucking God if I see anyone being a goddamn boner at tonight’s event, I will tell you to leave even if you’re sober. I’m not even kidding. Try me.

And for those of you who are offended at this email, I would apologize but I really don’t give a fuck. Go fuck yourself.

  • Because Michael Shannon has the capacity to understand the desperate existential ennui of a sorority girl in heat... so much for perfect tea cup manners.

  • amanda says:

    Actually....the girl speaks her mind, writes very well and is very passionate about her cause.
    I am a CFO for a multi-million $$ company and would hire this girl in a minute......she seems like the kind of girl who would get things done. Granted, the profanity is a bit overdone. A couple F bombs would have been appropriate. Her email was obviously written when she was smokin mad...but I love her frankness and the ability to speak her mind with proper grammer and spelling...that hard to find in a twenty-something!!

    • Annalee says:

      Seriously? The girl's Twitter account has been deleted, but her previous posts were full of grammatical errors. We were just talking at work today how she would never be a viable applicant into a competitive graduate school or firm.

  • Michelle says:

  • There are basic techniques to learn to master this type of
    fishing. The country is sparsely populated and it is surrounded by good sea shores
    and with deep waters. You just need to make sure that there is enough room on your kayak to bring everything you catch back to shore.
    The durability of the material can cause the ice fishing shelter to rip and for seams to split.
    However, I have found that wacky rigging has a higher hook up rate.

    lot more smartly-liked than you might be now. You are very intelligent.

  • I pay a visit everyday a few sites and websites to read content, except
    this weblog gives feature based posts.

  • Sometimes it even means using a float to get your line right out of the
    water a few feet from your rig. Many men and
    women have come back from a bass fishing expedition feeling light
    and perky even though they have been outdoors the whole time.
