He claims to have used multiple objects — a pen lid, a toothpick, a piece of wire and even a metal nail — to remove the food, but was unsuccessful, and even damaged his surrounding gum when doing so.
Did he think about using some dental floss first?

I suppose he did not, nursecindy. He probably didn't think to run an alcohol swab over any of those items, either. He sure didn't think about popping over to his friendly dentist for help.

Wasn't there an old Ed Wood movie titled, "Attack of the Killer Popcorn?"

For the record, do NOT Google photos of this condition.
