As is typical of most TriadCity commands, Chuckle 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 "chuckle box" will refer to the one in the room, not your inventory. You'd need to use "chuckle 2.box" for the latter.

Chuckle can be modified with an arbitrary word of your choice. Usually you'll use an intensifying adverb as shown in the examples above. Note that Chuckle does not use this modifier as a search specifier when looking for <thing>. Instead Chuckle displays this modifier via the Game channel. Thus you can "chuckle malignantly", "chuckle amusedly", and so on. You can also "chuckle 18373649" or "chuckle toothpaste-like", so, please don't. It's up to you to get the syntax right.
