Dang. As Cameron Laird points out, this should be

    >>> foo_name = 'Foo'

each time.

Moral of the story: if the example already works, and then you cut and
paste into the message compose window, and then notice that it could
be clearer and edit it some more...

... always test the example code you're *actually* presenting, after
all edits.
