This clogged toilet is giving me hell....help!

My friend is infamous for clogging toilets, and recently did some of his best work on mine. The problem is, before I realized it was clogged, I used the toilet after a particularly unhealthy weekend. So now the situation is disgusting.
I've tried plunging, dish detergent, boiling water, and one of those pressurized can CLR plumber things (which basically just splashed shit all over the place). Nothing is working and I'm wondering if there's anything else to try before a plumber.
The other issue I'm having is it takes so long for the water to drain after trying to flush once again, that I'm having to wait ~8 hours between attempts.
How much am I looking at if I call in a plumber?
This is a brand new toilet so that's not the problem....the pipes are old but I've never had any problems with clogs in the past.
Thanks for any help
