Hi what is happening is that your turn off your car and left the wheels turned to one side and specially if your car is parke in a hill what you have to do is to force the steering wheel to the same direction of your wheels this will free up the ignition switch it is going to be hard let me tell you but it will work and this is why your shift don't work once you have the ignition switch free then your shift will work again

You said that you giggled the steering wheel, Ron's suggestion was to confirm that you rocked the steering wheel. Which is the proper advice. but I want to define rocking the steering wheel. You need to turn the wheel one direction real hard, hold it there and try the key, then the other direction, same way. if that still doesn't work, I spray lube into cylinder and massage key in cylinder. another thing I try for worn out keys/ cylinders is to hold slight turning tension on the key, while I rock the key vertically in the cylinder as I pull out on the key at the same time.
If it is just ware on the key or cylinder that is keeping it from turning it, this method works pretty good with a little practice.
I hope my description makes sense.

Most likely it is a problem with the brake pedal interlock. This can be an electrical or mechanical problem. When you are in park and press the brake pedal, you should hear a faint click near the gearshift lever. If you do hear a faint click when you press the brake pedal, you have eliminated an electrical problem anyway- this would mean the interlock solenoid is not disengaging.
If the interlock solenoid is not disengaging, you will need to troubleshoot the mechanical problem. Often there is a return spring that pops off or breaks. The solenoid plunger can become stuck from either rust or one too many spilled cups of coffee.
If there is no sound at all (and it can be very faint, so you need to have the interior as quiet as possible. Key on, don't start the truck, everything that makes noise off) it can still be either mechanical or electrical. Begin troubleshooting by verifying that all your fuses are good.
That is about all the basics I can provide. Google your truck and you should be able to find a detailed service manual that will instruct you on how to disassemble the gearshift assembly and provide you with an electrical schematic of your trucks wiring. Good Luck, and Thank You for using FixYa.
