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

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