I have this code : 
import urllib
import pickle
image = urllib.URLopener()
image.retrieve("http://www.pythonchallenge.com/pc/def/peak.html","banner.p" )
plaatje = open("banner.p", "rb")
plaatje2 = pickle.load(plaatje)
But it gives this output :
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\Users\wobben\workspace\oefeningen\src\test2.py", line 7, in <module>
    plaatje2 = pickle.load(plaatje)
  File "C:\Python27\lib\pickle.py", line 1378, in load
    return Unpickler(file).load()
  File "C:\Python27\lib\pickle.py", line 858, in load
KeyError: '<'

What does this mean ?
