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

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