if "tacos" not in taco_joint: taco_joints.remove(taco_joint)

Good day! This actually refers to the previous step (question and answer portion) of this video. I tried the 2nd question in the launcher expecting that all items/elements which has a "taco" (whatever case - upper or lower or combination of both) would not be removed. Apparently, if the word "Taco" is present, as oppose to "taco", it would still be removed. How can I modify the script so that the word "taco" - whatever case it would be (upper, lower or combination of both) would not be removed?

Hola Leo,

In the example code above you are missing the lower() method after taco_joint. I too tried the previous code out of curiosity and found myself doing that little mistake.

if 'taco' not in taco.joint.lower(): 

Hope that helps. If not let me know. Saludos, Erik
