This looks correct???

I can't see what I am missing. My code appears to meet the challenge and what it asks for. My syntax looks correct. What am I missing?

def loopy(items):
  items= []
  for item in items:
    print item
  if item = "STOP":

    # Code goes here

I am not a python expert but based off the challenge, you need to break when the array has stop. Right now your loop is only printing items and the line after the loop is testing if item has stop in it. If I remember correctly python is a whitespace language and the if and for loop are on the same indentation level. Secondly, you want to test if the item has stop before you print and if it doesn't then print. So you want to use an if else here
