If request is a dictionary object, why must dict be called on it before turning it into a json string?
response.set_cookie("bunny", json.dumps(dict(request.form.items()))) # I tried this w/out the dict(), with dict(form..items) # this snippet only seems to work this way # although I believe I read that request is a dictionary obj # it seems odd to me that a dictionary obj # would need to be wrapped in a dictionary function to work

The request object is a ImmutableMultiDict, not a regular Dict. So we change the request object to be a normal Dict object, since Json requires dicts.
Now I don't know exactly what an ImmutableMultiDict is, but I imagine it's like a dict, but not one you can make changes to (the immutable part)
