My laptop is bulging!

The battery is swollen inside and the touch pad area of the laptop is getting deformed. It doesn't even sit square on my desk anymore.
Is it getting ready to explode in my face? I am posting this from my bulging laptop.

It could ignite or explode or leak. Change the battery ASAP to avoid damage to the laptop and its owner.

My old MacBook had the battery under the touchpad. It swelled to the point the touchpad didn't work right.

Roadfix, I'm hoping that this is a prank? If not, please!!! for your safety! Turn it off and put it in a place that should it explode will do the least damage.

Do you know what battery acid burns look like? Not nice/comfortable/barely bearable. They hurt.

I have never heard of this before. Please be safe.

Once it cools down... do not turn it back on but take it to a shop that could maybe extract what you would like to save. and then... I don't know... maybe buy a new one? They're getting cheaper all the time.
