Are you sure you've got a floppy disk stuck in the drive? Or is it 100 lodged in the chassis?

Floppy and Stiffy

In 1996, a work colleague - a South African now working in the US - referred to the 3.5" disk as a "stiffy". But when she described the incident to the IT help desk as "the stiffy had a virus...." those within earshot couldn't stop laughing.....Still makes me LOL to this day!
