Honda Mower Won't Start!

I have a 4 yr old Honda 4 stroke mower. Has always started on the first pull. Today I changed the blade, which I did 2 yrs ago, so I had it on its side for about 15 minutes or so. When I put it back up right it won't start! Last time I changed the blade it took a couple of pulls but started right away. This time, nothing! Fluids are fine, air cleaner good etc....

Change the spark plug and you'll probably be set to go. The fuel dumping in from the carb while it was on its' side fouls the ngk plugs that honda uses. Put an autolite or champion equivalent in it and you probably won't have any more plug problems.
