-->"You know, I get a lot of people asking me about stuff I hate now. You know, they'll write to me and say, 'Hey, what do you think about deforestation?' . . . Just about anything you can think of. And that's cool, because now it's like my ''job'' to hate shit, and I'm good at it, so it's all cool."
-->--2 the Ranting Gryphon, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=npOkOyVXLPI "Abortions"]]

[[http://ranting-gryphon.com/index.htm 2, the Ranting Gryphon]] is a [[{{FurryFandom}} furry]] comedian whose specialty is [[RantComedy amusing, often profanity-laced commentary]] on various subjects that annoy, infuriate, and otherwise perturb him - as demonstrated by the page quote, it's pretty much his job to hate various things, and he's good at it.

!!Tropes observed in 2's rants include:

* BerserkButton: Whatever the subject of his rant happens to be.
* BigNo: In one version of his [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zeTy6uewZZo "Accidental Toast"]] rant:
-->"Hey, stop that toast!"
-->"We can't! There ''will'' be toast!"
* CardCarryingVillain - Played with; in his "Portal of Evil" rant, he says that he must officially be evil because the Portal of Evil had an article on him.
* ClusterFBomb - Most of his rants and routines can be considered this, though there are a few that fall more into the PrecisionFStrike territory.
* PrecisionFStrike - The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q71cMRGXx9o "Global Warming"]] rant - as opposed to most of his rants, it has precisely three pieces of profanity: two "craps" and one "dumbasses".
* RantComedy - Well, he ''is'' 2, the Ranting Gryphon (emphasis on "ranting").
