Join can be a bit strange. You take a string literal, add .join() after it, and pass .join() the list of strings that you want to join. It will then join the list of strings that was passed to join, and put them together into one string, separating each string in the list using the literal that .join was called on. Here are some examples of .join() in Python:

'  '.join(sundaes) # banana split hot fudge cherry malted black and white
''.join(sundaes) # banana splithot fudgecherrymaltedblack and white
