You could try holding the mouthpiece end in a glass of ice water or wrap an ice pack it around it to lower its temperature and then run warm water (not too hot) over the lead pipe. The cold should contract the m.p. and the warm water should expand the lead pipe — you might want to borrow work gloves from your custodian so you can get a good grip to pull it out while it is wet. Can’t hurt to try it.
