Horrible oil leak on my lawn mower

I have a Toro lawn mower with a Tecumseh LEV120 engine and a horrible oil leak. when the spark plug is removed, oil pours out of the spark plug hole. I need to know why this is happening, and how to fix it.
Thanks.

First guess would be the oil is overfull which could be someone overfilled it or the carb seat has failed because the carb float is leaking and has become a sinker, smell the oil to see if it smells like gas, if so the carb needs attention, also you must change the oil. Have a good one. Geo
