You appear to have an indentation problem.

An if and its associated else should always line up, and anything that is part of either condition should be indented one more stop.

Agreeing with Steven Parker here,

Your tabbing is off, additionally you could just exclude the else statement.

def loopy(items):
    for thing in items:
        if thing == "STOP":
            break
        else:
            print(thing)

OR

def loopy(items):
    for thing in items:
        if thing == "STOP":
            break

        print(thing)
