Our Gundarland reporter, Sandra Elfenheimer, has filed this report on the Snotfest background.
Gundarism believes that the great god Gundar created the universe when he sneezed an explosive sneeze after snorting an overdose of his favorite recreational drug. The nodules of spittle flew through the nothingness and solidified into the suns, moons, planets and other celestial bodies.
The principal Snotfest ceremony takes place in the Cathedral of the Sacred Snot in southern Gundarland. During the ceremony, the two hundred member Sneezing Chorus performs a number of religious songs and chants. Using individual mixtures of green, red and black ground pepper, each member of the choir can sneeze a single musical note.
During the closing rites, every one of the congregation snorts a dash of pepper and the cathedral is filled with the sounds of multifaceted and voluminous sneezing.
Doctors and druggists make more money in the month after the Snotfest than they do in the rest of year. This is due to all the infectious diseases that are spread by the sneezing ritual.
