The big problem with a sneeze is getting the angle lined up with your center of gravity. The regular way of sneezing would impart more angular than linear motion. You have to tilt your head way back, etc. And for an involuntary reflex like sneezing that's not easy to do.

(Keep in mind that prior to the sneeze you need to inhale in the opposite direction.)

Note that it's far harder to adjust the angle at the other end. OTOH, it's sort of already lined up and the CoG can be adjusted by bending.
