* Actually kind of subverted in the ''DonaldDuck'' comic ''The Hypno Gun'' by CarlBarks, from which the page picture is taken. The titular hypno gun is in fact just a harmless toy gun that Huey, Dewey and Louie ''pretend'' to hypnotize one another with... however, Donald, overhearing them, thinks that it's a ''real'' hypno gun. Donald is, in fact so convinced that the hypno gun works that it actually ''does'' work on him, even if it doesn't work on anyone else.

Within 30 seconds of picking up a powered SCP-232, the person doing so will start to talk like a character in an old science fiction novel series.
