| How about:
|
| >>> [[[]]*5]*5
| [[[], [], [], [], []], [[], [], [], [], []], [[], [], [], [], []], [[], 
[],
| [], [], []], [[], [], [], [], []]]

Because that is actually only 1, not 25, empty lists
>>> a=[[[]]*5]*5
>>> a[0][0].append('ha')
>>> a
[[['ha'], ['ha'], ['ha'], ['ha'], ['ha']], [['ha'], ['ha'], ['ha'], ['ha'], 
['ha']], [['ha'], ['ha'], ['ha'], ['ha'], ['ha']], [['ha'], ['ha'], ['ha'], 
['ha'], ['ha']], [['ha'], ['ha'], ['ha'], ['ha'], ['ha']]]
