Oops, try again.
the_flying_circus() returned the value None, did you forget to add a return statement?
name = raw_input("What is your name?") age = raw_input("How old are you?") def the_flying_circus(): if (len(name) > 8 and age > 14): return True elif (len(name) < 8 and age < 14): return False else: print ("Please type a string")
