Simply Build It

Perhaps you can machine the swolen tongues a bit thinner using a router mounted to a table - I think this may loose the strength of the join however.

My gut feeling is that its better to do that and also make sure you have a level floor and be forced to glue down the flooring. I don't think its throwaway time unless the laminate is damaged.

I'm not at all a professional [TAKE NOTE] - but this might prompt the professionals to respond.
