As is typical of most TriadCity commands, Cackle searches for <thing> in a specific order, starting with the room you're in, then your worn or wielded equipment, then your inventory. So, if there's a box in the room, and a box in your inventory, the command "cackle box" will refer to the one in the room, not your inventory. You'd need to use "cackle 2.box" for the latter.

Unlike certain other social commands, Cackle cannot be parameterized.
