[Tutor] calling a module fails

Methinks I'm missing something obvious, but can't quite put my finger on
it. If, in the interpreter, I enter the following code:

def hungry(batVolt):
     if batVolt >94:
         return ("I am not hungry at the moment")
     elif 64 < batVolt < 95:
         return ("I'm starting to get hungry")
         return ("I'm hungry!")

and then run


with 98 just being an example of the many numbers I tried when testing
this, I get the return I expected and all is well.

If, however, I save the above in a file named hungry.py, then import
hungry, I get an error, as follows:

import hungry
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
TypeError: 'module' object is not callable

So what am I missing? Someone do please point out the obvious. ;-)

regards, Richard
