Ah, don't worry this is a really easy thing to miss. You're function loops through each argument in all arguments. You're currently printing all arguments instead of each argument.

I hope that makes sense. I'm trying to stop short of just giving you the answer, because it always seems to click better when I figure it out, but let me know if it's still confusing.
