Black key wont turn, and locked in park.

The title says it all. I went to a Drugstore last night and this was the condition I came back to. I have two black keys and they both do the same. Help please.

Did you try rotating the steering wheel both ways while turning the key?
Sometimes if the wheels are turned a bit it can put enough pressure against the ignition interlock to keep the key from turning.
