Accidentally flushed a big, clogging, plastic object. How to get it out?

    I accidentally knocked a plastic tongue scraper into my toilet without
    realizing it and unwittingly flushed it down. Now that it's stuck somewhere
    in the pipes, the toilet is clogged. Plunging won't pull it out so I need
    to try something drastic. Any suggestions on what I could do to retieve it,
    or any pointers on what part of the toilet I should dissasemble to get at
    it?

    Thanks,
    -Dan

    Unravel a wire coat hanger and form a gently curved smallish hook at one end
    of the wire and go fishin', ??.
