paint-clogged outlet

When one of my rooms were painted, one of my electrical outlets were painted over and clogged. Is there a safe way to get it cleared?

Have to agree with YukYuk on this although I would spend about 24 bits ($3) and get a good outlet.

What is it with you old farts and your bits? :D:D

My father used to use the term "bits" and I never knew what the heck he was talking about, and that was over 30 years ago. Pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters, greenbacks, I understand. In a pinch, euro's, coinage, or even frog skins will do. ;):p:D

bit = 1/2 a quarter

wooden nickel = hand full of soda crackers and piece of cheese or a pickle as big as your hand, might have something to do with being old farts :D

How much is a little bit? :D

Bits- originated from a long time ago when they use to cut dabloons into 8 pices for change. A dabloon was about the same size as an old silver dollar. 2 bits = 25 cents, 4 bits = 50 cents etc. When I was in the Navy a little bit was about $10 in most port of calls.:D

Oh, and YukYuk forgot to mention that a fin is $5

Now see, none of that makes sense! A little bit is $10, but a bit is 12.5 cents? I'd much rather have two little bits than a whole bit! :D
