The secondary top stuck when you tipped it in? That will do it.

Yes, the throttle shaft is gunked up. You can clean that. This so common, yo show remove the carb top and soak it. The screws holding the butterfly flaps on the shaft can be so tight thats it bends the shaft slightly causing this. Possible, not likely. Once the choke switch position or bend is fixed that will not be a problem.
