Passing the lessons, but the code isn't working


#1

I'm at the "Testing, testing, etc." lesson, basically just the postliminary lesson to test the code. I've passed all of the lessons, but the code itself doesn't work. It simply returns the original word with no changes. What's happening?

pyg = 'ay'

original = raw_input('Enter a word:')

if len(original) > 0 and original.isalpha():
    word = original.lower()
    first = word [0]
    new_word = word + first + pyg
    new_word = new_word[1:len(new_word)]
    print original
else:
    print 'empty'

Change this to print new_word. We no longer need to print original.
