spark plug trouble

when changing plugs yesterday, I found one that the socket would not fit on.
Upon further investigation I noticed that it was rounded off. What should I try to get this (1) plug out?(without breaking the plug and really being screwed)

Ouch, that sucks. Can you get a pair of pliers around it enough to break it loose?

You could try to JB Weld the socket to the plug. Just an idea you may not want to actually try that.

Try a Snap-On socket, they will bite in when other will not. Or try using a metric deep socket, it may fit a little tighter and may need to be tapped on. I would spray some WD-40 or simular around base for plug. Just in case its siezed.
