  3. Use form three when there are many instances of <thing> present, and you want to whimper over one of them in particular.
  4. Use forms four through eight to add a modifier, typically an intensifying adverb, to the verb.

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

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