Riddle me this...

Wow, just noticed that I haven't posted since September 11th... that's a horrible last date to have posted something, so let's go again!

Imagine this scenario:

You go to the bathroom ready to brush your teeth before bed only to find a sink full of water. The plunger/stopper/whatever you want to call it is stuck down. You try the lever at the back of the faucet, but nothing happens. You try from underneath the sink, just to make sure there is nothing wrong with the lever mechanism. Alas, after 30 seconds of hapless wiggling, you get nowhere. That metal plunger is stuck. Like, proper stuck. You try a knife/screwdriver to see if you can pry the stopper free, but to no avail. You can't get enough leverage to jimmy it out.

Using only common household appliances, how do you unstop the drain so that you can brush your teeth?

BN -- This (obviously) just happened to me, and I sorted it in under 15 minutes. I'll give you my solution after I see what you all come up with...
