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

Handclap 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 Handclap does not use this modifier as a search specifier when looking for <thing>. Instead Handclap displays this modifier via the Game channel. Thus you can "handclap encouragingly", "handclap sarcastically,", and so on. You can also "handclap 18373649" or "handclap toothpaste-like", so, please don't. It's up to you to get the syntax right.
