It is better to post to just one list at a time.

Runs OK for me!

The traceback does not match the code. Please post the code that 
actually generated this:

   File "/Users/leonardo/print.py", line 5, in <module>
     favourite color is %s.''') % (name, quest, color)
TypeError: unsupported operand type(s) for %: 'NoneType' and 'tuple'
