Stringify a list

    I'm not quite sure how to best solve your problem without "contortions"
if your list is a mix of numbers and strings. Its doable, but you'll need a
while/for loop, I think, and that qualifies as a contortion, I suspose. :)

    Now, if you change your logic such that a string representation of '2'
is inserted into the list, its easy.

Such as:

x = ['2', '6', 'A', '8', 'J']
print ", ".join(x)
