Please don't top-post. Thanks.
Your first assignment:
greet = compose_greet_func()
_calls_ (runs) the compose_greet_func and assigns its return value to greet.
Your second assignment:
greet_someone = greet
assigns the current value of "greet", whatever that is, to "greet_someone". No
function is called.
