Through the Griffin Door

(Harry Potter's Gryffindor)

(ALS "Ice Bucket Challenge" founder, Corey Griffin)

On August 20, the IBT reported that "Ice Bucket Challenge Co-Founder Corey Griffin Drown[ed] in [a] Diving Tragedy".

(Family Guy's Peter Griffin)

Prior to Robin Williams's suicide, it was reported that "BBC shows episode of Family Guy involving Robin Williams and failed suicide attempt just minutes before his death is announced".

The main anti-hero of that animated situation comedy is none other than Peter Griffin.

(Professor David Ray Griffin)

Or again, as we approach the anniversary of 9/11, we might revisit some of the independent, investigative work that has been summarized most ably - and most famously - by Professor David Ray Griffin.

(Webster Griffin Tarpley)

Another writer who has gotten into the 9/11 pageant was Webster Griffin Tarpley in his 9/11 Synthetic Terror: Made in USA (Joshua Tree, Cal.: Progressive Press, 2005). His George Bush: The Unauthorized Biography (with Anton Chaitkin, Washington, D.C.: Executive Intelligence Review, 1992) and Barack H. Obama: The Unauthorized Biography (Joshua Tree, Calif. : Progressive, 2008) are also noteworthy.

(Writer G. Edward Griffin)

I would be remiss if I neglected the Federal Reserve critic and author of The Creature From Jekyll Island, G. Edward Griffin.

("Professor Griff," Richard Griffin)

Another notable would be Richard Griffin, the rapper better known by the stage name, Professor Griff. Check him out being interviewed by radio host Alex Jones HERE

(Architect Walter Burley Griffin.)

Loren Coleman also mentions Walter Burley Griffin, an early associate of esteemed architect Frank Lloyd (Lincoln) Wright.

Of course: "The griffin, griffon, or gryphon a legendary creature with the body, tail, and back legs of a lion; the head and wings of an eagle; and an eagle's talons as its front feet."

The Griffin "will ...tear to pieces any human beings which it happens to come across." (T.H. White, ed., The Book of Beasts, New York: G.P. Putnam, 1960, p. 24.)

(Alice In Wonderland's Gryphon)

"It's all about as curious as it can be," said the Gryphon. (Lewis Carroll, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, 1866, chap. 10.)
